Coding Club

Promoting Creativity
in West Norfolk

Coding Club offers young people in West Norfolk the opportunity to learn basic computer programming skills through designing and making fun and imaginative projects. No previous experience is necessary.

Meeting online, our main aim is to foster a supportive environment in which to explore creative computing alongside peers, making friends through shared interests.

The first half of each session is a code-along, where a project is demonstrated and then built step-by-step. The second half is an open forum where participants can demonstrate their projects to one another, troubleshoot programming issues and work together on projects.

If they wish to, participants can showcase their finished projects in our online studio.

Coding Club used to meet in-person in libraries; during the pandemic we moved online and have found that this has several benefits for participants, including increased accessibility. Our aim is to continue building a sustainable, inclusive online community, while also restarting some in-person sessions.
