With the new term approaching, we ask Tamasin Greenough Graham, our new Head of Code Club, to share some details about the new Code Club resources and support available to you this September.
A fresh set of club organiser resources!
We’ve launched our brand-new digital Club Organiser Pack, which is bursting at the seams with seven new resources to support you this term!
The club organisers’ guide is full of useful tips to help you feel confident running your club sessions. Have fun with the Code Club bingo card, and celebrate your #MyCodeClub success stories with our NEW educator cards and GIFs designed for your social accounts!
If you are based in the UK, Ireland, US, or India, you can log in to your dashboard to download the pack. If you’re based somewhere else in the world, just head to our Code Club international website.
Head to space from your classroom this term
We are celebrating World Space Week (4–10 October) with a collection of space-themed projects to inspire your space-mad club members on the topic of space!
There’s something for everyone, from new coders to the more experienced. Check back on our blog later this month to find out more.
Book a chat with us!
Do you run a Code Club in the UK or Ireland and have any questions about getting back to Code Club this term? We are on hand to help! Our support help calendar has slots available throughout the week for you to book a video chat with a member of the friendly team.
Run your code in space
In September, join us to celebrate the launch of The European Astro Pi Challenge, an ESA Education project run in collaboration with the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
It offers young people the opportunity to conduct scientific investigations in space by writing computer programs that run on Raspberry Pi computers on board the International Space Station (ISS).
There’s something extra special about this year’s challenge, so assemble your crew, and count down to blast off!
Building your confidence
Soon we will be launching new project path crib sheets to help build confidence around our projects. They will help you learn key coding terms and common sticking points, to get you Code Club ready to run your sessions.
Join our Gender Balance in Computing programme
Starting a Code Club in England this term gives you the opportunity to join our world-leading Gender Balance in Computing research programme and help us understand what inspires young people to study computing at school! There’s no extra work involved and you’ll get your hands on 12 weeks of resources for your club as well as a FREE book Computer Coding for Kids by Carol Vorderman as our way of saying ‘thank you’!

We’re here to support you and your Code Club — no question is too small! The team can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a success story, we’d love to hear what you’ve been up to!
