@Steve-Kinsey Hi Steve, I saw you mention Microbits, I've got a few here and I am tinkering with them. Find them a lot of fun and the buttons and LED matrix make for some good use. I have to explore the site and the content a little more but will update once I do this.

Do you want to join CoderDojo at the Dublin Tech Summit this year!?
This year there will be an interactive CoderDojo Booth at the Dublin Tech Summit event (15th – 16th of Feb 2017).
Showcase your cool Project!
We are looking for CoderDojo Ninjas to apply to bring projects that they’ve made at CoderDojo to display at the CoderDojo Booth! The projects don’t have to be categorised and any cool project made at CoderDojo is eligible for application. If your project is selected you will be invited to showcase it for one of the days (either the 15th or 16th of Feb 2017) at the CoderDojo booth at the Dublin Tech Summit event in the Convention Centre, Dublin!
Deadline for applications is the 23:59 GMT on the 9th of Feb 2017. We look forward to seeing all your cool project application ideas! If you have any further questions contact us at:
Please note: this opportunity is for CoderDojo Ninjas (7-17), in Ireland, to showcase their projects at the event and NOT adult Mentors. Adults accompanying CoderDojo Youth will be responsible for the youths attending & need the necessary parental approval. All attendees will have to cover their own cost of travel to the event.
@Pavlo yes, the whole idea for the bento boxes is to be a pathway that consists of different elements and skills that can be used to achieve the desired role.
So for example the beginner game dev bentobox could include:
meta card -Principles of game design
Scratch - make the game
HTML - to promote and share the site
@KramKroc Wanted to share some ideas for projects and where to start. There are also some of the sushi series that can be turned into projects for example:
Create their own website to address a social issue or about their favourite hobby: HTML Sushi
Start a Raspberry Pi Project: Introduction to Raspberry Pi
App inventor is also fun and accessible to CoderDojo Youth to begin with creating apps.
