Event description

Description


Free event open to young people aged 7 to 17. Attendees must be accompanied by a parent or carer.

There is easy access by public transport, but no onsite parking. See here for directions.

Only book one activity per child. But, if your child needs to borrow a club laptop you will also need to book ‘Club Laptop’ activity at the bottom. Please only book a club laptop if you really don't have one of your own to bring.

Format of the evening:

5:00 - Short introduction & icebreaker

5:10 - Young people work on any activites they choose

6:00 - Short break for food & snacks

6:50 - Young people have a quick chat with other participants in their group about what they've done in the session


If you're unsure which activity to choose, email us for advice :-)

For this session, we will be reserving 50% of tickets for each gender until the Monday morning before the event, at which point we will open the tickets to all genders. If all tickets are taken for your child's gender, please don't book for the other gender, instead wait until the tickets become available on the Monday.

Scratch

An ideal way to get started with coding and have fun building video games and animations, with all the help you need. If you have done some Scratch before, we have a great choice of projects to make; or develop your own game concept with the help of our wizard mentors.

Bring a laptop or book club machine.

Python

If you already know Scratch and can type, now’s the time to try this powerful, grown-up scripting language (and have fun too!) by creating guessing games, interactive jokes, fantasy games, noughts & crosses, and lots more.

Bring a laptop or book club machine.


JavaScript

JavaScript is a very widespread and successful programming language used in web browsers. You can program everything from a simple animation to a complete computer game.

Bring a laptop or book club machine.


Design Club - design a helpful mobile app

Through a design thinking process, young people will design a helpful mobile app for a target user of their choice. Young designers will work through five phases: frame a design challenge, empathise with their target user, generate ideas, prototype a solution, and then test that solution for real-world feedback.

What is CoderDojo?

CoderDojo is all about self-led learning: it's quite different from a traditional classroom setting! Children can work on anything they want to, but we will provide exercises to choose from: both online and printed out. Young people are encouraged to "ask three, then me". This means they ask themselves first, Google second, their peers third, and if they're still stuck, then to ask the mentors.


Terms of participation:

A parent or carer must accompany their child/children throughout the session and take responsibility for them and for their belongings while on Yoti premises. Being cool means no bullying, lying or wasting people's time. Please show respect for the Yoti equipment and buildings; and have consideration for others at all times.

If you book places but are unable to attend, kindly let us know so we can reallocate the places to those on our waiting list. We reserve the right to refuse bookings in future by families who repeatedly book tickets, cannot attend and do not let us know.
