Breaking Ninja news: CoderDojo is back for 2020!!

CoderDojo is a worldwide community of coding Ninjas – people aged between 7 & 17 who regularly meet up in a social setting, to learn and experiment with coding.

Over the past couple of years, the Margaret River CoderDojo has explored game-making, website creation, drone programming, 3D printing and more…
The club starts up for 2020 at the Margaret River Library at 4pm on Friday 14 February and runs throughout the school term. We’ll be talking about a new coding challenge, and introducing the belt system (work your way towards being a Black Belt Ninja!)

CoderDojo not meeting this Friday 1st March

Due to several schools having a pupil free day this Friday, there will be NO CoderDojo this week.

We hope you all have a fantastic long weekend holiday and we look forward to seeing our CoderDojo Ninjas on Friday the 8th of March!

For those who may be unfamiliar with Coderdojo…

CoderDojo is part of a world-wide movement of free, volunteer-run coding clubs that help local youth (aged 7 – 17) to develop digital literacy skills in an inclusive, respectful and friendly social environment. The Margaret River CoderDojo usually meets at 4pm every Friday during school term.

The Margaret River Library supports the club by providing the meeting space, computing facilities, and other technology.

Since its launch in early 2017, the club has worked with robotics, digital art, 3D printing, and much more. The Ninjas sometimes work together in groups to complete projects, and at other times follow their own individual interests.
