Here at Moyle Park College our Code Club is part of Code Club International – a worldwide network of free, volunteer led coding clubs for students. Our club is one of the 10,000 clubs in 160 countries with over 160000 students. We think all students should have the opportunity to learn to code, no matter who they are or where they come from. We provide a space for students to learn about digital skills and coding in a safe, fun environment. We provide easy to follow coding projects which help students learn Scratch, HTML & CSS and/or Python by making games, animations and websites.
Our projects gradually introduce coding concepts to allow students to grow their understanding of digital making in their own time and at their own pace. The Code Club allows hands-on, kinesthetic learning. It seeks to nurture the concept of student lead learning using 21st century pedagogical approaches.
Collaboration and sharing of knowledge is an integral part of how the Club works. This year we collaborated with the English Department. Mr.O’Mara brought his 2nd year English students to join the our Coders after school. They experienced ”Scratch” software and created key moments from their Junior Cycle novel with the help and guidance of their peers and friends. We also partook in the European Week of Code as well as the Astro Pi: Mission Zero Raspberry Pi Project.
New members are always welcome.
