[note new day and time – sunday at 2 p.m. – same location]
Seattle CoderDojo is a free meetup for kids, powered by volunteers, donors, and sponsors. Our focus is to instill a love for problem-solving and a confidence with tech that will make it possible for your child to learn whatever tech skills they’ll need to through their life and career, whether they become a software developer, cardiac surgeon, or artisan baker.
ONE TICKET PER CHILD PLEASE. IF YOU ARE UNSURE, PICK *ONE* ROOM AND WE CAN ADJUST WHEN YOU ARRIVE.
WHAT’S ON THIS WEEK?
Ages below (except for FreeCodeCamp.com) are recommendations and not strictly enforced. Remember that whatever room you sign your child up for, you can always move to another at any time so long as there’s somewhere for them to sit.
Beginners (All Ages):
If they’ve never coded or had just a little experience a while back, get a ticket for this room. We’ll get them started on some tutorials to get them some confidence and some basic concepts.
Scratch (2nd Grade & Up):
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 Beginner tutorials, they’ll be able to jump into this pretty easily. It does require Flash so iPads and Android tablets won’t work.
Hacker Room (4th Grade & Up):
SPECIAL FOR JAN/FEB: VIM AND THE COMMAND LINE (Week 5 of 5)
“This class will be an introduction to vim, a visual text editor best known for writing code without ever touching a mouse. We will also cover some command line tools and use of the command prompt. There might even be a bonus code lesson :)”
FreeCodeCamp.com (8th grade & up):
ALL KIDS MUST HAVE AN ADULT ATTEND ALONG WITH THEM. NO DROP-OFFS. ONE ADULT CAN BE THE GUARDIAN FOR MULTIPLE KIDS. WE HAVE COFFEE.
FOR THE SAFETY AND SECURITY OF ALL ATTENDEES AND TO COMPLY WITH AMAZON BUILDING ACCESS RULES, ALL ADULTS MUST SHOW A PHOTO ID THAT MATCHES THE NAME ON THEIR TICKET AT CHECK IN.
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. CONSTRUCTION MAY MAKE IT HARD TO SEE THE ENTRANCE, WHICH IS JUST INSIDE THE MOUTH OF AN ALLEY BETWEEN THE CONSTRUCTION AND THE BA-BAR RESTAURANT.
* PLEASE BRING A LAPTOP IF YOU CAN. WE HAVE SOME ON-SITE LOANERS, BUT WE DO NOT GUARANTEE WE WILL HAVE ENOUGH TO MEET DEMAND.
