HELP YOUR KID LEARN TO CODE… FOR FREE!
Seattle CoderDojo is a free coding club for kids, powered by volunteers, donors, and sponsors. We help kids build projects and work through online tutorials.
WHAT’S ON THIS WEEK?
Beginners / Hour of Code:
The CEO of Microsoft, the President of the United States, and Seahawks players have all endorsed and/or participated in the Hour of Code. We offer it all year round, because kids should be able to get a fun, easy intro to computer programming any time of the year.
This room is also a great place to do a couple of intro lessons in Scratch to get your child ready to move up to the Scratch Room.
Scratch is a programming tool that lets kids create programs by combining different pieces that do things. No typing is required, no special software is needed, and after they’ve done a couple of the Hour of Code tutorials, they’ll be able to jump into this pretty easily. It does require Scratch so iPads and Android tablets won’t work.
We’re working with a “Pick Your Own Project” model where kids will get to choose from a number of interesting projects at various levels, or work on a project they’ve brought with them.
Build a Web Site:
Learn to build a web site or get help with the one you’re working on. If you’re new to web development, our mentors will help you and your children get started. If you have a child already working on a web site, they can get help from our tech pros on building its features (or help the newer kids).
ALL KIDS MUST HAVE AN ADULT ATTEND ALONG WITH THEM. NO DROP-OFFS. ONE ADULT CAN BE THE GUARDIAN FOR MULTIPLE KIDS.
PARKING IS NOT FREE, BUT THE GARAGE ACROSS THE STREET IS $2.44 (INCLUDING CITY FEES AND TAXES) FOR THE *DAY*. ENTER ON REPUBLICAN ST, BETWEEN TERRY AVE N AND BOREN AVE N.
PLEASE BRING A LAPTOP. WE HAVE SOME ON-SITE LOANERS, BUT WE DO NOT GUARANTEE WE WILL HAVE ENOUGH TO MEET DEMAND.
