Eccles CoderDojo Programming Workshop #11

November 10 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

coderdojo-programming-workshop

Free programming workshops for young people between 7 and 17 at CoderDojo.

Join Eccles CoderDojo every 2nd Saturday of the month for a family friendly programming workshop. You’ll be making music with Sonic Pi, using your artistic skills designing characters and animations in Scratch. Being creative building interactive stories with Twine. Getting physical, lighting up BBC Microbits, and developing our Python skills to make computer games and robots.

The event is super informal, it’s up to you which activities to work on so feel free to come on your own or bring a friend. Under 12s will need to be accompanied by an adult.

We’ll be gathering in the church hall and as the event runs over lunch time you might want to bring a packed lunch to eat in the kitchen area. Alternatively, there are various butty shops within 5 minutes walk towards Eccles centre.

Equipment is provided but limited so if you can bring your own fully charged laptop or Raspberry Pi that would great. If bringing your own it would be advantageous to install some of the following programmes before you come as wifi will be stretched if everyone is downloading on the day:

Scratch – https://scratch.mit.edu/download

Sonic Pi – http://sonic-pi.net

Twine – http://twinery.org

Python – https://www.python.org

Microbit – https://makecode.microbit.org/offline

We usually start to pack down around 2.30pm. There is free parking on site and in the surrounding streets.
