We asked educators, volunteers, young coders, and the Code Club team across the world to share their #MyCodeClub moments from 2020, to mark the incredible work that has taken place during this unprecedented year.
Loving their coding lesson
St Patrick’s Primary School based in Troon, Scotland shared their #MyCodeClub moment on Twitter:
Fifty children coding in one session
Vasu, Club Programme Coordinator in India, remembers a highlight from the year:
Coding from home
Liz, a parent of a Code Club member, shared her gratitude towards volunteers who moved their sessions online in 2020:
“A highlight for me was sitting at home with my son and coding along to the Code Club videos created by Wirral Libraries volunteers and Code Club members. Living 40 miles away from the library, it’s not a club we could have attended without the move online. We’re so grateful they took the time to create the YouTube videos.”
Ali, who coordinates Coding for Kids in Iraq, shared a recent #MyCodeClub moment with us on Twitter:
The sheer joy!
Matt from RGS The Grange in Worcester shared his #MyCodeClub moment:
“One moment is restarting our club and welcoming all of our fabulous students back at the start of this academic year! The energy in the room was like nothing I’ve ever experienced — just the sheer joy of collaborative projects, risk-taking, and so much fun!
Life is too short — live for the moment! Immerse your students and watch them grow!”
Hearing your great coding ideas
We spoke to Kat Leadbetter, Code Club Global Programme Coordinator, and asked her to share a personal highlight from 2020:
“A highlight for me was connecting to the community through co-hosting a series of community calls. We’ve run sessions on a variety of topics, from best practice for online sessions to developing your skills in Scratch. We were able to share amazing examples from clubs and volunteers around the world, support you with your questions, and hear your great coding ideas!
Seeing my friend at Code Club!
We asked young coder Ed to share his best coding moment from 2020:
Missing the great moments
Like many of us, Yakub in India is missing the great coding moments from the start of 2020. We hope your club will be able to meet again safely soon!
