Hi I’m Evelyn Wong and new to CoderDojo. I’m setting up a new CoderDojo Club at our school so volunteering to be the “Champion” coordinator! We work with computers all the time so hoping to create technology rather than just using technology. No experience with coding but hope to learn with all the students at school!
It’s great to hear that you are setting up a Dojo at your school!
Regarding your concerns about not having familiarity with coding- not to worry! There are a number of things you can do to get up to speed:
There are also some fun projects listed on the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s website, here.
Another thing you can do is to actively seek Mentors with some knowledge of coding to support you in your Dojo. This can be an adult or indeed, a young person. Try asking around the parents or guardians of prospective Ninjas, some of them may already be keen to get involved, but aren’t sure how.
The best thing to do when planning the content of a Dojo is to keep it quite simple in the beginning. It’s amazing what you can pick up after a few exercises. So I’m sure you will be fine
Here is the page to the ‘Start a Dojo’ application for whenever you are ready: https://coderdojo.com/start-a-dojo/
I will be here to help you with any support queries you may have
