ACS Victoria’s CoderDojo Southbank starts again next Thursday so make sure you register your child or young friend. Now four weeks in, our ‘coding ninjas’ have learnt to make a short video and how to create a simple ‘cat and mouse’ style game on a kids coding software called Scratch. Each week our volunteers introduce a new module or level in Scratch. Participants can begin to understand how sequencing the command codes in particular ways can bring their imaginations alive on the screen in front of them.
Our ninjas are encouraged to teach themselves and help each other before getting help from a volunteer, not only does this provide them new and relevant computer skills it also helps them build friendships. We only have one rule at CoderDojo and that is: Be Cool!
Remember that CoderDojo is a volunteer-led tech club where young people, between the ages of 7 and 17, learn to code, create websites, apps, programs and explore technology in an informal and creative environment.
