element14.com, the online community for engineers, has announced the launch of their latest STEM initiative, the Summer Code Club Challenge, in association with educational project kit developers Kitronik.

Following the success of last year’s Great micro:bit giveaway – which inspired creative design projects from educators in locations including Chile, Romania, New Zealand and Canada – the Summer Code Club Challenge aims to empower parents, teachers and STEM ambassadors to set up summer code clubs in their local communities, helping young people access coding and digital literacy resources and support while schools are closed.

Anyone who runs or would like to run a code club between the months of June and August 2019 can submit an application detailing when, where and how they plan to run their local club. Successful applicants will be provided with micro:bit club packs and Kitronik Inventor Kits containing all the equipment and resources needed to run a full curriculum of simple projects and experiments.
