HELP YOUR KID LEARN TO CODE… FOR FREE!
Seattle CoderDojo is a free coding club for kids, powered by volunteers, donors, and sponsors.
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.
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.
For the kids who have mastered a lot of the basic programming skills in Scratch, Mentor Michael is exploring more advanced game mechanics and other topics.
nodeschool / Indie:
ALL KIDS MUST HAVE AN ADULT ATTEND ALONG WITH THEM. NO DROP-OFFS.
PARKING IS NOT FREE, BUT NEARBY LOTS AND GARAGES RUN AS LOW AS $2 + TAX FOR THE DAY ON SATURDAYS.
PLEASE BRING A LAPTOP. WE HAVE SOME ON-SITE LOANERS, BUT WE DO NOT GUARANTEE WE WILL HAVE ENOUGH TO MEET DEMAND.
