First lesson, first full house success for CoderDojo
Well done @Associação-de-Cidadãos-de-Esposende-Fernando on hosting your first Dojo session.
When asked about why they started the Dojo, they noted:
“Children are an example in learning. Their abilities can change a street, a city, a country, a world.
We started CoderDojo Esposende to think of them as the men and women of tomorrow and who follow the example CoderDojo share information you can change something.
Esposende had nothing in programming neither young nor adults. We are here to help them and Volunteers, people who like to share and teach in exchange for the satisfaction that is seen in each face of our ninjas.
After the first class we have even more desire to work to teach to build something in an increasingly computerized society.”
“The Association of Citizens of Esposende has devoted all its time to causes of support and to encourage the participation of young people in different causes. There was nothing nearby here that allowed young people to create, share, and especially to live with other young people who enjoy programming and make new ideas.
So we decided to open a computer wing and there is nothing better than doing this with someone who has the experience of years of work and shares the same concerns that we share CODERDOJO is undoubtedly one of the best bets we made for young development in the county.”
Thnaks for sharing those lovely words with us
Below are some photos from the Dojo in Portugal:
@Nuala-Nic-Éil A pleasure to be part of this community.
