Split Spaces hosted their 1st CoderDojo on the weekend, with a number of eager students attending.
CoderDojo believes that an understanding of programming languages is increasingly important in the modern world, that it’s both better and easier to learn these skills early, and that nobody should be denied the opportunity to do so! Any young person aged 7 – 17 can join and attend a Dojo for FREE! At a Dojo they will learn skills such as building a website, creating an app or a game, and explore technology in an informal, creative, and social environment.
CoderDojo is not curriculum based, so every Dojo covers different topics. Often young people will start with Scratch, a visual programming tool, or by building their own website.
- A laptop. Borrow one from somebody if needs be.
- A parent! (Very important). If you are 12 or under, your parent must stay with you during the session.
