In August 2016, ACS Victoria established ‘CoderDojo Southbank’. CoderDojo, is a volunteer – led computer club for young people ages 7-17.
An international initiative established in over 60 countries, the CoderDojo movement believes that an understanding of programming languages is increasingly important in the modern world. It’s both better and easier to learn these skills early, and that nobody should be denied the opportunity to do so.
With great success in our 2016 sessions we are actively looking for more volunteer “mentors” to help in 2017! We are searching particularly for mentors with a strong knowledge of simple coding languages.
With an emphasis on self-led and peer learning, CoderDojo Southbank attendees not only learn new and relevant computer skills, but they also develop the logic and problem solving skills needed by all programmers and coders around the world.
Assisted by a great team of skilled volunteers, ‘ninjas’ begin learning their new language, exposed to the importance and possibilities of technology and how it shapes the world we live in.
We only have one rule at CoderDojo and that is: Be Cool!
Mentors will require a Working With Children check to participate, which is free for all volunteers.
