CoderDojo is an open source, volunteer-led, global movement of free coding clubs for 7-17 year-old kids. While each dojo shares the ethos of CoderDojo there is no typical dojo and the activities vary from club to club. However, they all teach young people about coding and how to develop software, as well as themselves, and explore technology by working with others and presenting their work. All dojos are inherently different and are influenced by the coordinators and volunteers who facilitate them. There is a focus on community, peer learning, youth mentoring and self-led learning with an emphasis on openness, helping others and showing how coding is a force for change in the world. Registration for Term 1 includes all sessions from Saturday 18 February - Saturday 25 March. Please be sure to arrive at least 15 minutes early for registration and set-up. Kids aged from 7-17 will be exposed to programming tools such as Scratch, HTML, Python, Alice and many more. In these programs they will work to create their own projects with the assistance and guidance of volunteer mentors – some of the best tech experts Brisbane has to offer. Please make sure you review all the information included on the CoderDojo session information page prior to registering. Parents must remain in the library for the duration of all CoderDojo sessions.
