Description

We're teaming up with the amazing team at the Disruptive Media Learning Lab in Coventry for a Code Club meetup and LEGO-A-GO-GO workshop.

If you're a digital maker, Code Club host or volunteer or just into the world of Lego, this event is for you!!!

The meetup is our way to give back and say thanks to the Code Club community as well as introduce new folks to what we're all about and get hands on with awesome digital making 'stuff' and activities.

So peak your curiosity, sign up (it's all FREE) and come share in what promises to be an ace event.

At the event, we'll have demos aplenty from our amazing Code Club hosts and volunteers as well as the lowdown on what's new and happening across the world of Code Club and the Raspberry Pi Foundation. We'll also have a bunch of guest speakers sharing their knowledge, insight and expertise. There will be plenty of opportunities to network and we'll likely have plenty of things to eat and drink too.

And we're delighted to welcome our special guests from the DMLL to deliver a Lego workshop with a difference.

LEGO-A-GO-GO is an interactive and engaging Beyond Flipped method for problem solving; regardless of discipline, learning level, or topic area. Application of the method results in a rich environment that facilitates a deep learning experience.

Utilising the L·E·A·R·N framework, LEGO-A-GO-GO creates a learning model that delivers quality by placing the student at the centre of the learning experience.

See you on the 13th July - can you tell I'm excited about this one!!!! \m/

About Code Club

Code Club is a UK wide network of free volunteer-led after-school coding clubs for children aged 9-11. Our aim is to inspire the next generation to get excited about computer science and digital making. To do this, we support a nationwide network of volunteers and educators who run free coding clubs for children aged 9-11 to build and share their ideas, learning along the way.

We have loads of schools, libraries and other venues across Coventry and beyond looking for volunteers now to start their clubs.

Our coordinator for the area will be present answer any questions you have about starting or running a club.
