The Kids Coder Dojo at DenHac is a computer programming class designed for elementary- through highschool-aged kids. Students will begin by using a free and open source visual programming language called Scratch (http://scratch.mit.edu/, available on Windows, MacOSX and Linux), and will be able to move on to more advanced languages as they progress at their own pace.
Attendees under the age of 13 are required to be accompanied by a designated guardian (though guardians are encouraged to come for all ages, and learning and having fun will be mandatory for all attendees). Attendees should bring a laptop or netbook for each student they bring if they can (and you are encouraged to bring extras if possible for those without access to a computer).
DenHac is a non-profit organization that provides a variety of technology and craft-related classes, and survives solely on donations and membership dues. As with most DenHac classes and events, attendance is completely free of charge, and membership is not required, however donations are strongly encouraged.
Doors will open at 11:30AM and instruction will begin promptly at 12:00PM. Snacks will be provided (but please bring your own for any special dietary needs), and we will be wrapping up at 3:00PM.
