Code Club is basing its projects around MIT's Scratch programming tools
Volunteers have kicked off a project to set up after school clubs that teach young children how to programme computers.
Called Code Clubs, the sessions will aim to instil the basics of computer programming into children aged 10-11.
The clubs will be built around practical hands-on tasks that will include children making games and eventually controlling robots.
It aims to have 25% of the UK's primary schools running a Code Club by 2014.
