Experience Level: Beginner - Experienced

Recommended Ages: 5-99

Description: Whether your child has never seen a line of code, or already has their own app in the App Store, there will be an activity here for them. We will provide you with many different options for self-paced learning and exploration of code and coding concepts. Like Robots you can code either with your computer screen or magic markers? We'll have those too!

This is a great way to "try out" the Dojo if you've never done coding before.

There will be options for a very wide variety of ages and levels of experience including some programming options favorable to early/pre-readers. This will not be a lecture but a self guided session with tools and mentors to help guide you through the experience.

We will have experienced, professional programmers as mentors available during the "Hour of Code" to offer suggestions and help you if you get stuck. As always in the Coder Dojo, we will encourage the participants to help each other out as well. We often learn best by teaching others.

Computer requirement:
This session will be held in the 2nd floor computer lab.

Please RSVP to this session so we can get a headcount and make sure we have a good mentor to coder ratio. Use the "Additional Guest" for any additional children. Parents do not require a registration.

Parents are required to remain with their child during the session. You may not "drop off" your child.
