      CoderDojo Cornwall

      The first CoderDojo Cornwall. CoderDojo? Coding is an important skill in a world that is increasingly digital. Coding is also fun and creative! A CoderDojo is a fun and relaxed way to learn to code. And with code you can craft websites, build smartphone apps, make games, control robots and create beautiful art. CoderDojo is a world-wide network and you can find out more: Who Is It For? CoderDojo is for children aged 7 to 17 and is ideal for anyone who has never coded before or would like to learn in a relaxed and supportive group. Parents and guardians also find the sessions useful to help continue learning and experimenting outside the dojo. What Will We Do? Children will pick a small bite-sized project to do in the dojo. These projects include a tutorial, opportunities to experiment and play, as well as make something interesting. At the end of the dojo there will be an opportunity to show what you've been working on and talk about your experience making it.  Initially we will have projects  on: Scratch - a very gentle introduction to coding, perfect for younger coders OpenProcessing - a beginner-friendly way to have fun creating art with code Python - a very popular language that's also easy to learn, ideal for those progressing from first steps Micro:bit - using Python to control a BBC Micro:bit for fun hardware projects As we grow we'll cover more of the different paths available, including making web pages and Raspberry Pi projects. You can find out more here: Practical Stuff CoderDojo is FREE! There is no cost for attending and taking part. Please arrive promptly for a 13.30 start. We'll finish at 15.50. Please bring a fully charged laptop for your child to use. In future we hope to have spare laptops for use in dojos. Scratch, Python and Micro:bit projects will require some software to be installed - we can help you in class. All children under 13 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for the duration of the dojo. You can bring food and drink for your child which can be eaten in the bar/cafe in the next room during the break. You can contact the organiser at coderdojocornwall at gmail dot com. Have fun!
