Who is this session for?
This session is aimed at anyone looking to start their own community coding club (Dojo) for young people aged 7-17 in their school, organisation or local area, as well as community members looking to boost their mentoring skills and CoderDojo knowledge.
You could be a parent, a young person, a Teacher, Librarian, Youth Worker, Community Development Officer, Local Council Community Manager, After-School Care Coordinator, Business Owner, Volunteer Manager or other.
The one thing that all CoderDojo Champions and Mentors have in common is an interest in enabling innovative learning opportunities for young people to help them improve their digital literacy skills.
What you will learn in the session
Basic rules of a Dojo
To ensure that running a community coding club (Dojo) is right for you, please check to see if you will be able to meet the following requirements:
What is CoderDojo WA?
CoderDojo is an open source education movement, and a worldwide community of fun, free and social coding clubs (Dojos) for 7-17 year olds (Ninjas) which help them develop digital literacy and other 21st century skills.
CoderDojo WA is the Western Australian node of the international CoderDojo movement. CoderDojo WA is led and supported by the Fogarty Foundation, with help from our partners Woodside and Scitech.
Who runs and supports these Dojos?
CoderDojo clubs are run independently at a growing range of locations including universities, businesses, schools, community centres, libraries and more. These clubs are usually run by self-nominated Champions with the support of their employer or a host organisation. These Dojos look to gain support from volunteer Mentors from within or outside their organisation so that their Ninjas are supported during sessions.
What about parking and transport?
Scitech is just across from the City West Train Station. You can park for free under Scitech (City West). Make sure that you get your parking ticket validated by a Scitech staff member so that you can get out of the gate on your departure.
Are you interested in becoming a CoderDojo WA Trainer?
We are looking to empower more community members to deliver training in their communities. If you would like to become a trainer, please select the "Trainee Trainer" ticket when you book.
CoderDojo is an open-source, volunteer-driven, global movement of free coding clubs designed for young people (or, as we like to call them, CoderDojo Ninjas!).
CoderDojo WA was initiated by, and is run and supported by the Fogarty Foundation. The Foundation focuses on innovative programs and initiatives that advance education, are West Australian focused and have a long term impact.
