The mission of Code Club Australia is to give every child in Australia the chance to learn to code by providing project materials and a volunteering framework that supports the running of after-school coding clubs.
Learning to code is an important skill now we’re living in a digital age. It’s not just enough for children to know how to use technology. They should know how it works too. And learning to code doesn’t just mean you can become a developer; it strengthens problem solving skills and logical thinking, and supports key academic subjects such as science, maths and technology.
Code Club Australia is part of the Code Club World network.
We create projects for our volunteers to teach at after school coding clubs. The projects we make teach children how to program by showing them how to make computer games, animations and websites. Volunteers go to their local junior school or other venue, such as a library, for an hour a week and teach one project a week.
