The response for CoderDojo Brisbane in 2014 has been phenomenal with Chermside and Mt Ommaney participant tickets already selling out.
To ensure the success of each CoderDojo, we would love to have more volunteer mentors for all locations.
What’s involved when registering as a volunteer mentor?
Volunteer Mentors are integral to the success of each Dojo. All it takes is a few hours of your time over a few Saturdays. If you’re bringing your child anyway, it’s even easier! Mentors should ideally possess:
• The willingness to create and deliver content passionately and interactively
• A desire to encourage kids to take an interest in coding
• An ability to think on your feet – kids can ask some very interesting and challenging questions.
• Anyone can be a mentor. You don’t need to be an expert in coding – all you need is a passion for helping kids learn. If you have an interest in coding, technology and programming, that’s a bonus!
CoderDojo continues to inspire many people around the world – not just kids – have you heard of Leo’s inspirational story? It just proves the importance of coding in today’s society as well as the vast opportunities it presents.
