CoderDojo Hour of Code: Get Creative with Coding!

db-cdscratch-hoc_699x300px_v1

CoderDojo Hour of Code™ Event: Get Creative with Coding!

CoderDojo Brisbane is excited to announce a very special school holiday workshop to wrap up a fantastic year of the program!

CoderDojo will be hosting an Hour of Code™ event on Saturday 10 December at The Capital, a brand new innovation centre in the heart of the Queen Street Mall. The Hour of Code™ is an international initiative by Computer Science Education Week and Code.org to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming.

The CoderDojo Hour of Code™ event will be a fun, two-hour workshop where ninjas will have the opportunity to create a variety of projects – including flying animations, Minecraft mazes, and more. All projects are suitable for all skill levels, with no experience necessary. More information will be provided to ninjas and their parents closer to the event.

The workshop will highlight Hour of Code™ activities featuring Scratch. With Scratch, young people can create interactive animations, stories, games, and anything else they can imagine. Scratch has become the most popular programming language for kids, with millions around the world sharing interactive projects on the Scratch website.

We are very pleased to announce our special guest for this event, Natalie Rusk, one of the creators of Scratch. Natalie will be joining us all the way from the Scratch Team at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the US. She will be available throughout the workshop to answer questions about Scratch and for ninjas to show her the projects they’ve created.

Registrations for this event will open on Thursday 17 November at 10am via the CoderDojo events page.  There are two sessions available, 10am-midday and 1-3pm. Places will be allocated on a first in, first served basis. Due to popularity of school holiday workshops, it is anticipated that all places will be taken soon after registrations open. Parents should be online when registrations open if they wish to secure a place.

As with all CoderDojo sessions, ninjas will be required to bring their own laptop and wear their CoderDojo t-shirt. If you are new to the program or need a different t-shirt size, there will be a place to request this on the registration form. Due to the capacity at the venue, we ask that only one parent attend with each ninja and that multiple ninjas be brought by the same parent/guardian where possible. Parents/guardians must remain in the venue for the duration of the session.

There will be a professional photographer and possibly a film crew capturing moments from the day and all ninjas will need a parent/guardian to complete a Talent Release Form on the day. If you do not want your child to be photographed, please specify this on the registration form and advise the CoderDojo mentors when you arrive at the event.

We hope to see your ninja at this very exciting end of year workshop!

Date: Saturday 10 December
Time: 10am-midday or 1-3pm (please only register for one session)
Location: The Capital, 155 Queen St, Brisbane
