FAQ

  • What is Code Club Australia?
    Code Club Australia is a nationwide network of free, volunteer-led, after-school coding clubs for children aged 9-11. 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. See our about page for more.
  • Where are you based?
    Code Club is a small team based in Sydney. We are part of the Code Club World network based in the UK. Our team here formed in 2014 and we’ve been growing ever since!
  • Can I see the materials you teach?
    Yes! See our resources page, which will give some examples and link to the Code Club git repository (another website where we keep all our projects).
    If you’re planning to volunteer, note that we’ll send you more information on how to use these materials when you’re ready. Get in contact first!
