For our upcoming free festive Code Club meetup, we're coming to Sunderland and teaming up with RTC North. If you are a teacher, an educator, a Code Club host or volunteer, or someone interested in getting involved with Code Club, then this event is for you.
This meetup will be a fun, friendly, informal space where you can meet like-minded members of the Code Club community, talk all things Code Club, and hear the latest updates about how we are helping kids all over the North East to get coding.
If you’re new to Code Club or thinking about volunteering for us, this is also a great place to get started.
The event will include talks, demonstrations, and a chance to get hands-on with some digital making activities.
Our confirmed speakers and demos so far are:
- Anna Pearson: Regional Coordinator (Code Club UK/Raspberry Pi Foundation)
- Jonathan Sanderson: Digital Engagement and Making Specialist (NUSTEM)
- Karen Marshall: Apprentice, Education and Engagement Lead (Accenture)
- Lyndsey Britton: Founder Tech for Life

The talks are a great opportunity to learn more about the North East tech community and about how individuals and organisations are engaging with young people and bridging the digital skills gap.
