Raspberry Pi Foundation - Learn at home initiative

Raspberry Pi Foundation have launched a new, free Learn at home initiative to support parents and young people with coding at home. You don’t need any coding experience to join in, and all of their resources and activities are free forever.

Every Monday, they release new themed code-along videos about projects designed for all levels of ability, and every Wednesday, they host a live coding session. They also provide support tutorials for parents interested in learning about coding tools such as Scratch and Python, and over 200 coding projects with step-by-step instructions that are accessible online at any time - all for free.
