There is no cost to setup the CodeKey after-school club at your school. Nothing to pre-purchase and no commitments. A small, per class, club fee is charged to participating students’ parents. This fee funds the entire program. There are no contracts. Parents can cancel at any time. This fee is typically around the same price as, or lower than, your school's existing after-school programs.
At the end of the program, CodeKey will donate to the PTA. We suggest that this donation is used to support technology needs in your school. Also, CodeKey compensates a club leader for their time. Club leaders are typically a teacher at the school or a teacher from a nearby school.
Simply fill out the setup form, get permission from your school/principal, reserve a room at the school and send out the CodeKey invitation to your school's listserve or mailing list. CodeKey handles the rest, including student registration, fee collection, multiple class reminders, volunteer coordination and confirmation, attendance tracking and updates, and volunteer recruiting. CodeKey provides a true turnkey solution.
Students in Codekey Clubs are introduced to the proven and award-winning curriculum. This intuitive curriculum was first developed at the MIT Media Lab and utilizes age-appropriate learning activities using animated characters and Lego®-like blocks of code.
Students will learn coding concepts and are introduced programming at an early age. Teachers and parent volunteers will be introduced to the coding curriculum as they guide students through their exercises. We also encourage students to help other students in completing activities. The PTA will receive a donation to help fund their technology goals, and the club leader compensated for their time.
