When & Where
CoderDojo Sunshine Coast
What is CoderDojo
CoderDojo is an open source, volunteer led movement orientated around running free not-for-profit coding clubs (Dojos) for young people.
At a Dojo, young people between 7 and 17 learn how to code, develop websites, apps, programs, games and much more. In addition to learning to code, members meet like minded people, show off what they’ve been working on and learn new things. CoderDojo makes development and learning to code a fun, sociable and awesome experience. CoderDojo also puts a strong emphasis on open source and free software, and has a strong network of members and volunteers globally. CoderDojo has just one rule: “Above All: Be Cool“, bullying, lying, wasting people’s time and so on is uncool. To learn more about the international CoderDojo organisation go to CoderDojo.com

Get Involved - Become a Mentor
There are a number of ways you can get involved in CoderDojo Sunshine Coast. Mentors are the driving force behind CoderDojo, enabling the spread of CoderDojos around our community and getting more young people coding.
Anyone can be a mentor. You don’t need to be an expert in coding – all you need is a passion for helping kids learn. You don't have to be at every session - whatever time you can provide. You are often asked to guide kids with ideas, point them to other kids who have the knowledge or call in help of a lead mentor with the tough questions.
