- In Jan., the club will help new members experience Code.org's "Hour of Code". If you have never experienced programming you are most welcome to join us.
- For experienced programmers we are developing programming skills by building robotic behaviors with an Arduino microprocessor.
- You will need to bring earbuds if you want to hear sound when using the library's computers.
CoderDojo is a free, international, coding club for young people. If you are between the ages of 8 - 17, interested to learn computer programming, play with electronics and 3D printing (or are already a Tech Guru) and you are willing to share what you learn with others you can become a club member. No prior programming experience is necessary. There is no cost, just bring a parent. We'll be meeting twice a month, the second and fourth Saturday, to build cool apps, devices and programming skills with creative young people who love playing with computers and sharing what they know with others.
Our format is exploratory and not lecture, although we will have "show and tells" from time to time. Teams will be formed to solve challenges and each team presents what they have built and share how they did it with others. Here is a short video which walks you through our format: http://youtu.be/oiYgexwsPJE . Read what @startropica thinks about our program: http://bit.ly/13pmmct
If you like the idea of creating computer programs to tell a story... perhaps by building a game, or using arduinos/3D printable objects to show how to realize your ideas, then you have found a home. If you know how to program, work with electronics, or know how to make things and want to share what you know with other kids then become a Dojo Mentor. There is a lot of great info at http://coderdojo.com for beginners and mentors alike.
Grab a free ticket and have your parent complete this short survey: http://goo.gl/5Uimd Oh, one more thing. There is only one rule when at CoderDojo: Be cool!

We are a group of tech professionals and students who work and study in South Florida and believe kids should have free and open resources to learn computer programming. We are sponsored by Florida International University School of Computing and Information Sciences.
