Event description

Description

This "Open Dojo" session will provide a free and open learning environment where you can independently learn to code, work on projects, study technology-related subjects and connect with like-minded learners.

Bring your device and project-work, study-material or coursework of your own choice. Learn at your own pace. Do CoderDojo's online Champion and Mentor training. Be motivated by the presence of others. Take a break from your study and connect with others who are also learning about code and technology.

If you want to learn to code but haven't started, come and start here! We will have some suggested websites for you to log into and start straight away with no prior knowledge needed.


Who is this event for?

Parents, educators, library professionals, technologists, students and young people!

Current or prospective CoderDojo WA Champions and Mentors!

This event is for anyone involved, or interested in getting involved, in CoderDojo WA. CoderDojo WA is a network of fun, free and social computer programming clubs for young people aged 7-17 and their families. This community welcomes people of all levels, from complete beginners to advanced coders.

Whilst this session is more for adults than it is for children, it is still family friendly and you are welcome to bring an infant or children aged 7+. However please be mindful that you will be fully responsible for any children that you bring for the duration of the session. Our expectation for young people is that they bring something to do. Apart from an introduction, there will be no structured presentation so you can stay for as long as you like.

Please note that our photographer will be taking some photos during the session that will be used to promote CoderDojo WA in future.



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.

Our aim is to help our young people learn how to learn, overcome the frustrations of coding, to tinker, create projects, and develop a lifelong love of learning and creating with technology.

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, Scitech and South 32.

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?
