Support, Ask questions, Help
Our first Dojo is this Saturday, the 27th of January. I have seen a few posts or references to a Swag Package with stickers and a poster, but I have not been able to figure out how to request one.
I am specifically hoping to get some Coder Dojo stickers to thank our ninjas for attending the first session. Thanks in advance for your help!
Sorry for the delay @Muhammad-Shakeeb-Khan with CoderDojo there is no set curriculum. For starting out you can try some warm up games see the ice-breakers here, and try out some of our new idea generation resources to help get them thinking about projects You can then show them a selection of projects that other young people involved in CoderDojo have created (such as those at Coolest Projects last June).
You can also check out our resources here which have a variety of paths you can follow, so that young people can lead their own learning.
Do they want to build a website? Or try out Scratch? Make an app for their android phone?
That is great to hear. We are running our Dojo here in our office tonight, but we would be happy to meet you here and hear how you are getting on
Organising a Dojo
I’m guessing this is a term event that already occurred at least once?
If you send over by PM the modifications and a link to the event, we can very likely take the time to have a look.
Thanks for getting in touch. It’s great that you are interested in starting a Dojo!
In most cases the building insurance of most locations should cover you, but occasionally some companies and venues require a Dojo to have their own public liability insurance. It might be good to consult the company’s legal department for advice on your ninjas’ ages and insurance requirements for children, as they sometimes vary. You are allowed to engage in fundraising for your Dojo to cover unavoidable costs such as insurance.
If you need to provide a document which outlines the ethics and regulations of the CoderDojo ethos, that can also be found here: http://kata.coderdojo.com/wiki/CoderDojo_Charter_of_Ethics
If they need any further evidence of your club, once you have gone through the Start a Dojo process and have been verified, I would also be able to provide you with a letter to confirm the integrity of your Dojo.
I hope this helps Cindy!
