By joining Code Club, children will learn the basics of computer programming using Scratch, including how to create simple computer games and animations. Each Club runs as a structured course lasting for 20 weeks. Our Code Clubs are organised by Derby Libraries and sessions are run by trained volunteers and staff.

Children taking part must be aged from 8 to 13 years old at the start of the course and must be a member of Derby Libraries.
