Samsung Code Club Regional Hub
Samsung and Code Club announced their partnership in November 2013 launching the ‘Robo-boogie’ competition inviting young coders in primary schools to use a web app to create funky dancing robots. The winning coder and the school with the most public votes were awarded laptops to start their own Code Club.
Over 2014 Samsung & Code Club will be opening 5 new regional Hubs across the UK at community centres which currently have no computer facilities. These 5 Hubs will be equipped with Samsung laptops to run Code Clubs and train future volunteers. Nearly 700 schools are looking for a volunteer nationwide.
The first Samsung Code Club Regional Hub in London opened at Dragon Hall in February 2014.
The next opening is at Manchester’s Factory Youth Zone in November 2014.
We believe ensuring young people get the opportunity to learn how to code at an early age, and inspiring them to pursue careers as programmers and computer scientists is critical for the UK’s economy. We are both passionate believers in the additional benefits of learning to code – strengthening problem solving skills and logical thinking – supporting learning of key academic subjects including STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).
Code Club is a nationwide network of free volunteer-led after-school coding clubs for children aged 9 to 11.
Dragon Hall Tech Hub is the first Regional Centre for Code Club and run our very own code club at Dragon Hall on Tuesdays from 5pm to 6pm

Why should Children learn to code?
Learning to code is an important skill now we are living in a digital age. It’s not just enough for our children to know how to use technology – they need to know how it works too.
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 teaches children to program by showing them how to make computer games, animations and websites. Code Club is about fun, creativity and learning through exploring. They are in charge of the computer, and can (and should) make it do what they want, not the other way around.
