Hi all,

 

Thought you might be interested in CodeClub NZ which we just launched at ITX the annual conference for the New Zealand Institute of IT professionals.

 

National TV News article

http://tvnz.co.nz/na...g-video-6103266

 

CodeClub teaches kids how to program (plus some basic electronics) using MIT Scratch, Python, and Netduinos. 

 

We use content from CodeClub UK for the Scratch & Python labs and have developed our own for the Netduino

 

For the Netduino IoT labs we spend a term (8-10 weeks) teaching the basics then the next term we build projects like

 

2WD robots 

power consumption monitors

ultrasonic rulers

heart rate monitors

EMG monitors

 

We have got sponsorship from several local companies to fund our programs (we charge nothing for the courses) and our launch event was sponsored by Microsoft New Zealand.

The classes are all taught by IT professionals from local companies with support from CodeClub NZ.
