A CLUB WHERE CHILDREN LEARN STEM SKILLS… FOR FREE!
Seattle CoderDojo is a free club for kids, powered by volunteers, donors, and sponsors. We help kids build projects and work through online tutorials with periodic specialty workshops.
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 (All Ages):
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.
Build a Web Site (3rd Grade & up):
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).
Developers Room (5th Grade & Up):
FreeCodeCamp.com (8th grade & up):
Free Code Camp is an online, self-paced, free educational program that starts from beginner level and helps its learners become certified developers. Teens work at their own pace, and can get help and camaraderie at our meetups.
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 IF YOU CAN. WE HAVE SOME ON-SITE LOANERS, BUT WE DO NOT GUARANTEE WE WILL HAVE ENOUGH TO MEET DEMAND.
