Rebecca CoderDojo at Minneapolis Community & Technical College
Rebecca CoderDojo is a safe and fun learning program for girls-only, ages 8-16, to explore coding.
Students under 13
Parents—if one or more of your children are under 13, you must remain onsite at Rebecca CoderDojo for the duration of the event. There is a nice lounge area near the event room for parents to use. We appreciate your cooperation!
If you’re under 13, a parent or guardian must register for you.
Location & Parking
The event will take place in the T building on level three in room T3000 and will begin promptly at 1:30pm. The room is not easy to find so please look at the campus map and T building map carefully. Also be sure to allow yourself extra time for parking and finding the room. Street parking (i.e., meter parking) around MCTC is typically free on Saturdays (be sure to double check!); otherwise, there is a parking ramp directly west of the T building and connected through the skyway. The cost is typically $5 for the day. Several public transit options are available; please check MetroTransit for the latest schedules.
What is CoderDojo?
CoderDojos are free computer programming clubs for young people led by groups of volunteers. Rebecca CoderDojo will be using Scratch (easy-to-use language to build games and animations), AppInventor (Android mobile apps), Arduino (electronics and circuits), and Python (general purpose programming) - all programming languages that can be quickly learned.
Mentors can be at any level of programming experience or no experience at all; so you don’t need to be an expert programmer to be a great mentor! Mentors of all gender identities welcome. Mentors are expected to arrive by 1:00pm on event days and stay until 3:45pm. If you want to sign up to be a mentor at future events, please fill out this form and we'll get back to you to get setup for the next event!
What to bring?
AppInventor students need a gmail account. Scratch students need an email account to save their work. Without these, students can still participate in the event but won't be able to save their work for later.
