"Coding is a lot of fun and very creative. When you've seen fire‑power added to a shark's bottom or a piano made of bananas then you'll know what I mean."
Clare Sutcliffe is co‑founder and CEO of Code Club – a nationwide network of free, after‑school coding clubs for children aged 9‑11 in the UK. There are over 2500 clubs in the UK and over 500 clubs in 70 countries teaching over 40,000 children around the world to code – 40% of Code Club members are girls. Sutcliffe believes that teaching children to code gives them a new tool to express their creativity, build their ideas and share them with the world.
