New members are always welcome
Ninjas from 7 to 17 are welcome to join us. Children aged 12 and under must be accompanied by a parent/guardian who stays in the same room as them for the full session.
For the 2020/2021 season, we have the following groups delivering online sessions for CoderDojo Athenry:
EXPLORERS: for young kids (must know how to read) Learn Scratch! program your own interactive stories, games, and animations. Scratch helps kids to learn to think creatively and reason systematically.
ADVANCERS: for kids ready to move on from Explorers, features more advanced projects in Scratch and some other technologies.
BODGERS: for kids who have done Scratch and want to move on to a more advanced coding language. We’ll use Python to create our own animations and games similar those being created in both Scratch groups.
MODELLERS: will be using the free 3D modelling software Blender (https://www.blender.org/) to create and build 3D models. We’ll look at modelling, texturing, rendering and maybe even video creation. We will be starting again from the basics, so beginners are welcome.
HACKERS: for teenagers in secondary school who have plenty of past technical experience in CoderDojo. They use teamwork and collaboration to come up with ideas for challenging projects, and they tackle the projects using of skills they have developed in other CoderDojo groups and new skills they acquire during the year.
Our sessions take place every Saturday between 1:00pm and 3:00pm in Clarin College, Newford, Athenry, Co. Galway, H65 KC65
We post notes from a lot of our projects and games on this blog. Anybody anywhere who wishes to re-use them is welcome to do so.
Contact us with any questions: email@example.com We look forward to you joining us!
