The children are learning so much about coding but also about working as a team, being peer mentors and solving problems thinking about them before asking for adult help. Their expertise is being used within classes to assist their classmates when they are programming as part of the school curriculum and this includes the digital champions who are at hand should staff/children require assistance. They frequently continue working on their projects at home and are excited to show the teacher running code club their accomplishments. In code club they also laugh a lot, enjoy cracking the code and are really proud of themselves when they complete a project.
