Code Club Volunteer

The Mount Cameron Code Club is run by local volunteer Mark Fletcher. Mark is a locally based Web Application Developer, who has kindly donated his time to bring the opportunity of computer coding to our P6 & P7 pupils, through a weekly 'After School' club.

Code Club think all children should have the opportunity to learn to code, no matter who they are or where they come from. To do this, Code Club supports 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.

Code Club currently has over 8,000 clubs in over 80 countries, and it's club projects have been translated in 15 languages.

Code Club projects are easy to follow step-by-step guides which help children learn Scratch Logo Scratch, HTML/CSS Logo HTML & CSS, and Python Logo Python by making games, animations, and websites. The projects gradually introduce coding concepts to allow children to build their knowledge incrementally, meaning there's also no need for the adult running the session to be a computing expert.

Code Club was founded in 2012, and in 2015 joined forces with the Raspberry Pi Logo Raspberry Pi Foundation, a registered UK charity. Code Club Logo Code Club is a key educational programme for the Foundation, working to help many more young people learn how to build their ideas with code.

In this project, we are going to create a game in which Toby the dog has to collect 5 cheese-puffs bowls to win, whilst preventing balls from falling on the floor. If Toby drops more than 2 balls, the game is over. So the question is: can you keep all the balls in the air?
