CoderDojo Back for Autumn 2015 Term

This Friday (2nd) at 17:30, the Dojo is back.

Info for Kids/Parents

CoderDojo is a movement orientated around running not-for-profit coding clubs and regular sessions for young people.

At CoderDojo, young people learn how to code, develop websites, apps, programs, games and more.  In addition to learning to code, members meet like minded people, show off what they’ve been working on and as well as developing key critical thinking and problem solving skills. It’s also a lot of fun!

We’ve also pre-booked between now and Christmas, at which point we’ll be taking a small break and will be relaunching in January. Those dates are:

Info for Mentors

Thanks to our recent “mentor drive”, we’ve got lots of new volunteers to help out with running this great programme. (There’s always room for more!)

As part of this new wave of mentors, we’re hosting an induction session this Wednesday between 17:30 and 19:30, sneaking in before the Google Developer Group Meetup (although we can break out into the workshop if discussion continues).

Don’t worry if you’re running late / can’t make it, but it’d be helpful if you could let outreach@farsetlabs.org.uk know if you’re no longer interested and we’ll take you off the mailing list.

This discussion will include:

  • Introductions / Networking (“Hi, I’m $NAME, ask me about $SKILLS, don’t ask me about $FEARS”)
  • Child Protection Policies / Emergency procedures
  • Worksheet / Equipment / Resource overviews
  • Communication preferences
  • Open forum for “cool things we should do”
