About Code Club
Our aim is to inspire the next generation to get excited about computing and digital making.
At Code Club, we think all children should have the opportunity to learn to code, no matter who they are or where they come from.
This is why we support a nationwide network of volunteers and educators who run free coding clubs where young people aged 9-13 build and share their ideas, learning along the way.
Our projects are easy to follow, step-by-step guides which help young people learn Scratch, HTML & CSS, and Python by making games, animations, and websites. The projects gradually introduce coding concepts to allow young people to build their knowledge incrementally, which also means there’s no need for the adult running the session to be a computing expert. All activities for this club can be found within the students Google Classroom.
It is the code club program at Humble Elementary that children get the chance to compete in the local All Earth Ecobot Challenge. We learn our skills and study up on the science and medical world of today and look forward to it's future. They are presented with 4 different challenges that they must then engineer a robot using the Lego EV3 robotics kit, develop a plan to conquer the challenges, and then code the robot to carry out that plan. All while adhering to strict time constraints. The top performing teams from our club will then get to compete in a 4-5 hour competition against 200+ other teams from across Houston.
**Any and all important communication with club members parents will be sent via text message using Remind101.
Ecobot Challenge 2018
This year Ecobot teams had to learn all about agriculture. They had to study the past to under it and know why innovation changed things so much. They then had to learn about farming for the future with verticle, indoor, city center farms that produce 2.5 billion pounds of food a year. Once they learned all this information they were then challenged to program their Lego Ev3 robots to accomplish the different farming task that was represented on their game boards. From GMO's to plowing fields they had a great time.
