My Dojo has a lot of interaction during the demos, and kids helping other kids, but for the most part the kids work on individual projects. One of the things I really like about my Dot&Dash (thanks CoderDojo:-) is that 2 kids partner up and create something together.
I’d love to have a few coding project ideas that can be done together. Does anyone have suggestions that have worked well in your dojos?
@Pavlo Sounds like a good idea, if you have the website then why not! We are also looking into getting the videos embedded on our site so you can make everything more widely available through Kata. Once we have the pages with the videos done, and the new links, you can upload the Sushi Cards to Kata, or we can upload them for you
Before Christmas we published a Global Guide to Safeguarding Young People in Dojos on Kata. You can see the Child Protection Global here.
Adapted from the Irish Child Protection Policy that was released in 2015 it is aimed to give all global mentors an overview of how to recruit volunteers, and volunteer code of behaviour.
Our intention is to adapt this document into a unique mentor on boarding process (integrated with Zen) so all mentors are taken through it as they join Dojos around the world.
Any feedback is always welcome,

My pleasure! - if they do end up purchasing a domain name in the future- they could still choose to set it up with their github pages if they like https://help.github.com/articles/using-a-custom-domain-with-github-pages/
A new Coder Dojo coming up at Westerhailes in Edinburgh.I have venue and i need a mentor to run the program, because i don’t have the technical knowledge to run it myself.
I look forward to hearing anyone that might be interested.

What wearables projects have you been working on? I’ve seen a few shared now and again on the forums, like this Flora Christmas tree shared by @Sanneke-van-der-Meer, are there any more out there?
Here’s what I made for the Intermediate Wearables Sushi that I’m currently writing…
I have to say it’s pretty exciting when after a lot of hard work sewing you finally plug in the Flora… and everything lights up! It works, Hurrah!!
Also, those NeoPixels sure are blindingly bright don’t you think??
