CoderDojo

We are in the planning stages of setting up a CoderDojo to give kids (aged 7 - 17) the opportunity learn about programming and seek assistance from mentors. From the official CoderDojo website:

The CoderDojo movement believes that an understanding of programming languages is increasingly important in the modern world, that it’s both better and easier to learn these skills early, and that nobody should be denied the opportunity to do so. To that end, we’ve built a global network of free, volunteer-led, community-based programming clubs for young people. Anyone aged seven to seventeen can visit a Dojo where they can learn to code, build a website, create an app or a game, and explore technology in an informal, creative, and social environment.

If you are interested in helping out, please join our Slack group. Volunteers will be essential in making the group a success, we're especially keen in help from STEM ambassadors.
