FIRST TIME (of many) AT DIGIPEN

It's our first event at DigiPen. Come on out and help us celebrate the beginning of what we hope is a long and magnificent run there.

We'll be back and forth between DigiPen and Amazon this month. Then, on September 6.. both locations at the same time.

Here are your top 5 bullet points about  Coder Dojo.

  • Suggested Ages: 8 - 18
  • Skill Levels: All
  • Coding languages: Depends on volunteers, but we always seem to have mentors for Scratch, HTML/JavaScript, PHP, C#, and Java on hand. If your child needs help with another language, please check with us in advance.
  • Parents must stay on premises. No drop-offs.
  • Please bring a laptop for your child (Linux, Mac, or Windows) or a Windows/Windows RT tablet (some content will not run on iPads). A limited number of loaners will be available if you cannot bring one.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

============================

WHAT IS SEATTLE CODERDOJO?

It's a coding club where kids ages 8-18 can learn the skills to make computer games and other programs.

WHAT KIND OF GAMES AND PROGRAMS CAN THEY LEARN TO MAKE?

Games for the web, games for PCs and Macs, games for XBox... Racing games, adventure games, puzzle games, guessing games... If your child has never never programmed before, they're not going to make MarioKart or Angry Birds on their first time out, but if they keep coming to CoderDojo, we'll help them get there.

And yes, if they are mature and focused enough to want to make the next Google, Amazon, or Facebook, we can help them learn to do that too.

WHAT DOES THIS COST?

It's free. Our organizers and mentors are volunteers and space is donated by our generous sponsors.

IS THIS A CLASS?

This is a club with mentor-led instruction. The beginners will get some basic lessons to start with while the more advanced kids can work on their own ideas with mentors helping them when they get stuck.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

Bring your age 8-17 child and a laptop running Windows, OSX (Mac), or Linux. You'll need to stay for the whole CoderDojo (no drop-offs). Your laptop should be able to connect to WiFi and have a battery that will last for 2 hours.

WHAT SOFTWARE DO I NEED?

If your child is brand new, they'll just need a web browser and a text editor. Every operating system (Windows, Mac, ChromeOS, or Linux) comes with these installed. 

CAN MY CHILD BRING A FRIEND?

You can reserve up to three child tickets. If you want to bring one of your child's friends, as long as they'll fit in your three and their parents are okay with you accepting the waiver on their behalf, you're good.

Organizer

Seattle CoderDojo

CoderDojo is an international movement of FREE community coding clubs where tech professionals volunteer to mentor children in coding skills. Hundreds of Dojos around the world share their knowledge and experience with each other to help develop curriculum.

Seattle CoderDojo was founded in Fall 2013 with a handful of kids in the back of the Microsoft Store. As of Fall 2014 we have over 850 members in our meetup group and we're still growing.

No experience necessary to start.
Always free of charge.
