According to Codeacademy, even teachers who have little experience with programming can facilitate the after-school club. There is a free, downloadable curriculum, and Codecademy also provides a mailed kit to the first 250 teachers to sign up, which includes stickers and “other stuff for your club”.
The program is self-paced, and there are no downloads or special pieces of equipment required. As long as you have computers with compatible internet-connected browsers, you do not need to provide any other materials.
Codeacademy’s After-School Program looks like a great opportunity for younger students to begin learning the basics of computer languages.
