Salford Code Clubs: UPDATE

Posted by Rachael Turner, over 4 years ago

From Sunday 15th February, MadLab will be running Code Clubs in Salford, from our new public venue on Chapel Street. The clubs will give Salford children their first introduction to programming, by teaching them fun and interesting projects that will develop their computing skills.


The taught languages will progress through Scratch (a visual, block based programming language), HTML (used everywhere on the web) and Python (a simple to understand, general purpose programming language – it’s used on the Raspberry Pi).

At 2pm on Saturday 24th January 2015, at MadLab Salford (216 Chapel Street), we will be holding a welcome session; to give Salford kids their first introduction to programming and allow parents to ask any questions they might have (and perhaps have a go themselves). If you are interested in attending, please register at

The success of these clubs largely depends on generous volunteering by programming professionals and hobbyists, without whom the Code Club network could not function. We have brought together volunteers from local companies and organisations including the University of Salford and the BBC at Media City.
