But unless anyone knows Python then we aren't going to be able to program a Raspberry Pi and help Liz out in schools.

As far as I understand it, the first term is based around MIT's Scratch (http://scratch.mit.edu/) and then more advanced languages come into play. It looks as if Scratch is available for Windows, OSX and Debian/Ubuntu so any school should have the kit to run it on; they won't need Raspberry Pis. Which is a good job because mine STILL hasn't turned up!

You're all far too clever!!!  I knew there'd be loads of closet programmers out there.
Thank you very much indeed for welcoming me to the forum and replying to my request.
I've PM'd a few of you plus I've managed to find a few other potential volunteers on Twitter so I'm really pleased with the response.  At this rate we'll turn the Goyt Valley into the next Silicon Valley!
Meanwhile, if you'd like to find out more about Code Club, check out this very funny video they made.  It's gone viral!

Are there any people out there with computer programming skills they'd like to share with school children?  A group of parents at a local primary school is setting up an after school Code Club.  It's part of a nationwide project to get a network of computer clubs across the country.  Check out the website http://codeclub.org.uk/  
The government is changing what children learn about computers at school so that there's more of an emphasis on programming rather than just learning about office software.  We want to be at the forefront of that national push!
So if you have the skills and share our passion for this project, please check out the Code Club website, see if it's for you and get in touch.
Thank You.
Liz, it's twenty (plus) years since I did any programming but I might be able to help. PM me and we'll discuss.

Great what a wonderfully website .  ;)
