According to coderdojo.com, CoderDojo is a global movement of free, volunteer-led, community based programming clubs for young people. While Westside Community Schools hasn’t officially started a Dojo, the EY Team is excited to try it out to see if there is any interest.
The first CoderDojo will be held on Saturday, September 19 for students in grades K-6. There will be a second Dojo on Saturday, November 21. Both Dojos will run from 9:30 am – 12:00 pm at Westgate Elementary on 7802 Hascall St. A parent or guardian must be present for the duration of the Dojo.
Based on interest and feedback, further Dojos will be scheduled throughout the year.
