The OTA16 CoderDojo

CoderDojoWe are pleased to once again be collaborating with the CoderDojo London team, to offer a free coding event for 7 to 17 year olds on Saturday the 26th. If you are attending Over the Air, we invite you to register your 7 to 17 year-old (or niece or nephew) to take part in the CoderDojo workshop.

They will need to bring a laptop with them to take part, and all minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for the entire duration of the session. The event is completely free but numbers are limited so we do ask that you register and get a ticket in advance, including your own name, so that we can plan for the correct numbers.

REGISTRATION IS HERE

CoderDojo is a worldwide movement of free, volunteer-led, community-based programming clubs for young people. Anyone aged seven to seventeen can visit a Dojo where they can learn to code, build a website, create an app or a game, and explore technology in an informal, creative, and social environment.

The CoderDojo movement believes that an understanding of programming languages is increasingly important in the modern world, that it’s both better and easier to learn these skills early, and that nobody should be denied the opportunity to do so.

Featured tracks at the event will include:

  • Swift Playground
  • Naturebytes
  • BBC micro:bits

A number of the CoderDojo workshop participants will be invited to do a “Show & Tell” of their work on Saturday afternoon after the Hack Day entrants have shown their hacks. It is entirely up to your child whether they would like to take part in this, but unfortunately we won’t have enough time available for all children to take part.
