Announcements for 2017

CoderDojoTo will not be holding our regular monthly event in January.

We are working on a number of exciting initiatives and will be sending another e-mail soon with announcements! Stay tuned for important updates about upcoming CoderDojoTo community events, skill building materials, and volunteering opportunities.

Thank you for learning code with us.

CoderDojoTo had a great year in 2016. We ran 15 community events, allowing us to teach 350+ coders new computer skills. Dozens of mentors, volunteers, and community members lent their support to make this past year a huge success. We truly couldn’t have done it without your dedication, donations, and support! Thank you to everyone who came to learn and share coding skills this year.

We would like to extend a special thank you to our venue sponsor, Bitmaker, for providing crucial space and internet for our monthly workshops, and to all the companies who’s generous support made free computing education possible – including Full Stack Toronto, Infinite I.T. Staffing, Microsoft Yorkdale, Toronto Public Library, STEMCA, and Sticky Brain Studios. Thank you!

 

 

 

2016 Highlights:

We had the pleasure of running a variety of new workshops and curriculum content this past year.

CoderDojo Toronto – Monthly Code Club (Ages 8-17)

By | Uncategorized

CoderDojoTo’s mission is to introduce young people to the joy of computing. We provide a fun learning environment for students and parents alike, breaking down barriers, challenging social and economic stereotypes, and empowering youth to shape their world through code.

We offer an open-format, curiosity driven exploration of computer skills based on interests from the students. Mentors are on hand to work through provided resources, help with computer questions and projects, and generally answer questions about the possiblities of computing.

Event calendar and registration here!

To prepare for this event, you might want to consider what type of project you want to make. Some ideas to get the ball rolling:

  • About your family
  • An issue that you care about (your community, environment, culture and society, music)
  • Highlight a collection or hobby (Embed videos or Scratch programs, archive your rare stamps)
  • Your small business
  • A website about sealife, horses, or dinosaurs

If you know what you want to build your project about, what will it do?

  • How will you package it (is it a game? a web page? a pod cast?)
  • What pages/stages will it have?
  • Who do you want to use it?
  • Do you want people to be able to contact you?
  • How should visitors of the project feel?
  • Do you want the visitors to complete an action?

We are looking forward to mentoring you as you explore the possilities of computing!
