This data outlines the experiences of nine UGs and one researcher from Newcastle University who worked in partnership with nine local secondary schools and an afterschool coding club, as part of the “Create, Learn and Inspire with micro:bit and the BBC” (CLIMB) initiative from Spring to Summer 2018. CLIMB was a pilot scheme coordinated by BBC Research and Development that encouraged STEM undergraduates to design and deliver three computing lessons to Year 8 pupils (12-13 year olds). The study of this engagement, we seek to contribute towards an understanding of the barriers, motivations and opportunities for university-school partnerships in support of computer science education.
