CoderDojo Brisbane Term 4, 2016 Grange: Advanced Session
CoderDojo Brisbane is currently recruiting for Term 4 mentors for an advanced CoderDojo session at Grange. Are you passionate about coding, computers and technology? Want to contribute to a highly successful, community-led program and help teach the next generation of coders and developers? Why not become a volunteer mentor for the CoderDojo Brisbane program?!
As this is an advanced session, mentors should be familiar with at least some of the following languages and concepts:
• Scripting languages like Python and Lua
• 3D animation in Unity
Mentors should also possess the following:
• The willingness to create and deliver content passionately and interactively
• A desire to encourage kids to take an interest in coding
• An ability to think on your feet – kids can ask some very interesting and challenging questions
CoderDojo is a coding club with no set curriculum, and each location operates slightly differently depending on the experience, skills and interests of the mentors. If you have experience and knowledge in different coding languages, please discuss this with your fellow mentors during the first session.

When: Every Saturday from 8 October - 12 November
Location: Grange Library, 79 Evelyn St, Grange 4051
Register for one or more Saturdays over a block of six weeks. As CoderDojo is a program run by volunteers, your fellow mentors rely heavily on your attendance – if you commit to mentoring in a particular week, please attend. Mentors will nominate their availability when they register, so please also advise the lead mentor if you will be missing any sessions.
If you are brand new to mentoring, we highly recommend attending the Week 1 session. This session provides a great insight into what CoderDojo Brisbane is all about. We will put you in touch with your lead mentor before the first session in case you have any specific questions.
All mentors are welcome to bring their children along to all CoderDojo sessions provided they are aged 7-17. Please email Kelly at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a place.
Please note: all session times are subject to mentor registrations. Any changes to session times will be updated before ninja registrations open on 26 September. Mentors will be notified via email of any relevant changes.
