The Elks Lodge in Rockville has generously allowed us to use their place over the summer to continue CoderDojo! They have a very large meeting room and Wi-Fi, so we should have no trouble with Scratch, Minecraft, HTML, Arduino or whatever activities we have going. We'll continue with our current format of coding and mentoring for the first hour and a half and then a show-and-tell session at the end.
If you have a laptop, please bring it to the meeting. Installing Scratch, Minecraft and other tools on the laptop is recommended, but if you don't know what to do, we'll help you out.
Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
Getting there by car
The Elks Lodge is at 5 Taft Ct. in Rockville. It's right off Gude Dr. near the intersection with Route 28. They have plenty of parking around their building, and we'll be meeting in the lower level. The best entrance is around the side as shown in the photo below:
Getting there by public transit
Depending on where you are coming from, it is best to check Google Maps for planning your trip. Google Maps can check both the WMATA and Montgomery County Ride On schedules. If you're at Rockville metro, the 59 and 48 buses take a near direct route (less than 10 minutes) to Gude Dr. and Taft St. From there, it's a short walk east to 5 Taft Ct. The 48 bus should leave Rockville Station at 2:50 PM. For the return trip, the 59 bus leaves Taft St. and Gude Dr. at 5:15 pm and the 48 bus leaves from the same place at 5:25 pm.
