ACS Victoria is thrilled to be launching our own chapter of CoderDojo, a volunteer-led computer club where young people, between the ages of 7 and 17, learn the ability to code, create websites, apps, programs and explore technology in an informal and creative environment.
The program emphasizes both self-led and peer learning, providing young people with new and relevant computer skills. In addition to learning these skills, attendees will meet other like-minded people and will be exposed to the importance and possibilities of technology and how it shapes the world we live in.
CoderDojo sessions are set up and run by technically skilled volunteers with relevant teaching and computer programming experience. The sessions are designed to be informal and fun for children where they are encouraged to help and teach one another, aiding them to become confident in learning their new computer skills.
The ACS Southbank session will run fortnightly from 4.30-6.00pm starting Thursday 18th August. Currently there are only 15 spots available, so advance bookings are required. To register, click here. Children can come along with their laptop, Wi-Fi access and their parents – who must be present for the entire session.
If you would like to learn more about the CoderDojo program, you can find more information on the CoderDojo website https://coderdojo.com/start-a-dojo/ or by contacting [email protected].
