Learn Scratch With Us!

Most kids are consumers when it comes to technology.  CoderDojoDurham wants to help change that.  CoderDojoDurham, a computer programming club for kids ages 7-17, is a great environment where our kids can learn, collaborate, create, and share what they make.

scratchRight now, our dojo is learning Scratch.  Scratch is an excellent to way to learn about if/else statements, looping, operators, and other concepts that are essential computer programming skills.  Instead of typing bits of code, Scratch uses color-coded blocks.

“With Scratch, you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations — and share your creations with others in the online community.  Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively — essential skills for life in the 21st century.  Scratch is a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab. It is provided free of charge.” source: http://scratch.mit.edu/about/

And remember, CoderDojoDurham is in need of mentors who are computer scientists/hobbies with a passion for helping kids.  Visit this page to learn more, or e-mail us at coderdojodurham@gmail.com.
