@Gemma-Cagney has been a Robotics Mentor at the Silicon docks CoderDojo for over ten months. Her Dojo is notable in that girls outnumber boys on a ratio of about 60:40. Below she shares a little bit about what they’ve learned along their journey. For her, the three most important factors for creating and growing a Dojo which is fun for all involved have been their network, environment and content.
Gemma has written two blogs already about her insights and advice:
Building a Network to support female Mentors and Ninjas
Creating an environment to support female ninjas
