These sessions take place in the computing rooms of the Generalitat de Catalunya Libraries network. The CodeClubCat provide them with the material and the support needed to carry out the programmed sessions (between 10 and 12 sessions of 1 and a half hours).
Libraries provided their rooms and IT resources, while the CodeClubCat supplied the educational material and the web support.
However, the project needed volunteers to teach the children in the libraries. Consequently, the promoters contacted the FIB and the online university UOC (Universitat Oberta de Catalunya) asking us to spread the word on the project in order to engage students willing to carry out this special training.
Bachelor’s degree students in Informatics Engineering and Data Science and Engineering (GEI and GCED) get 2 ECTS for extra-university activities as a reward for having participated and satisfactorily finished the scheduled workshops.
Libraries will offer some working hours options for the students involved in the activity. Once the enrolment finishes, the libraries Service allocates and informs the students. According to the established calendar, volunteers will do training before they start the workshops. They will also have to be in contact with the allocated library to agree on the schedule, etc. Then, fun with the kids start!
Finally, Libraries service will send us volunteers' certificates of attendance in order to get their credits recognition done.
