Kids, would you like to make your own computer game?
Parents, would you like your children to be creative with technology instead of simply consuming digital devices?
What is Code Club?
We run creative programming workshops for kids, ages 9-11. Our amazing curriculum sparks their passion for technology through fun and games.
The International School is the first in Luxembourg to host a weekly code club. From there, we will spread to many other schools in Luxembourg and the Greater Region.
From time to time, we also organise one-off public workshops. No previous experience with computers is required for these stand-alone sessions where all kids from 7 to 14 years old are welcome.
We are a growing team of volunteers - programmers, teachers and parents passionate about code literacy.
Our goal, as part of a worldwide movement, is to give every child the chance to learn programming.
Why should children learn to code?
Learning to code is an important skill in this digital age. It’s not enough for children to know how to use technology. They should know how it works too.
Learning to code doesn’t mean you have to become a developer - just as learning to write doesn't make everyone a best selling author. It strengthens problem solving skills and logical thinking and supports key academic subjects such as science, maths and technology.
What we teach
We get the kids hooked by letting them code their own games, animations and websites.
Terms 1 & 2 use Scratch to teach the basics of programming. In term 3, kids learn HTML and CSS to build their own website. Term 4 teaches Python and so on: Code Club creates a new set of projects every term!
You can help!
We can only do this with your help! Personal and corporate donations are appreciated, but most of all we need you to donate your time: Code Club needs volunteer programmers and teachers to run weekly clubs, schools to provide the space and parents to support their local club.
