Community-based programming clubs


(Pete O'Shea) #1

Hi all,

My name is Pete and I work with the CoderDojo Foundation. FYI: CoderDojo is a global, volunteer movement of free coding clubs for kids 7-17.

I love the Educational kits that GitHub have created and have requested some for the community. I wanted to start a thread to hear about everyones thoughts and experiences with community based clubs that educate people both young and old!

I feel that these types of communities are a force that can change the world by giving everyone the opportunity to either learn or share their knowledge with others.

Hi Pete.

I run something similar, teaching kids K-8th grade coding. There are not many of us here.

FREE resources - 80 code lessons w/teacher training materials (lesson plans and screencasts) at www.TeachingKidsProgramming.org. In #TKPJava, designed to be used for kids ages 10-17 and to be taught by middle or high school teachers.
