Description

For those who are new to Scratch.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note: Some parents have reported difficulties with booking on the phone; please try a computer if it does not work for you.

If the event is booked out, do join the wait list, we will try to find extra mentors.
Once on the waiting list, watch out for our email and BOOK YOUR TICKET WITHIN 24 HOURS, we will assume you don't want the ticket any more if you don't book it within that timeframe!

A free Coding Club for children from 7 to 17, with or without previous programming experience!
***Donations gladly accepted, box in the CoderCafé Room
and / or bring a bit of money for the Tuck Shop - we rely on donations & the Tuck Shop income ***

Sign-up implies that you are OK with the following:

Bring a laptop. (And the admin password.) Bring a parent who will stay for the duration (unless the ninja is 12 or older). Make sure you bring your Eventbrite ticket either on the phone or printed! We expect this event to be fully booked, so bringing your ticket is essential. You can bring it in digital version (on a smartphone) or printed out on paper, your choice.

Please make sure you're booking for the correct group. Remember, we always have a waiting list - return your ticket if you cannot make it; join the waiting list if the event is booked out, we nearly always manage to allocate spaces.

  • Beginners' Scratch: Never coded before or nearly-new to coding ? This might be the group for you - discover the coding application Scratch and create your own animations or games.
    Download Scratch 2.0 offline editor onto your computer please before you come. http://scratch.mit.edu/scratch2download/
    If you've been to Beginners Scratch and found it really easy, please move on to Scratch+.

  • Scratch+: Sign up for this group if you want to take your Scratch skills to the next level. This group is for ninjas who are already comfortable with Scratch basics like loops and variables, and can write a simple Scratch program on their own. The focus is on kids working on their own projects. Doing some coding at home between sessions is highly encouraged!

  • Web Design: We'll be doing HTML, CSS etc. This group is for you if you understand broadcasts(between sprites), networking programs in Scratch (sharing variables) and are comfortable building/explaining programs using the above. Newcomers always welcome!

  • Digital Projects (Allsorts). We will be doing various things, newcomers welcome if they want some serious challenge. We may introduce you to modifying online games by reprogramming their code. We may build on solid Scratch knowledge and make things go whizz and whirr with our new Raspberry Pis. We'll see what exactly that means... If ninjas want, they can also work on their own projects, e.g. in Unity, and we'll assist them during the CoderDojo session.

We would like to thank our sponsor, RazorSocial, for helping us by covering the rent. Creative Computing Classes Skerries are providing the necessary organisational support.
