Thanks to Martha Borden and Falmouth Academy, we are very excited to launch our first free Coder Dojo on Saturday January 26 from 10 am - Noon at Falmouth Academy Technology Lab.
We will run two tracks one for kids who never coded (Scratch- https://scratch.mit.edu) and more advanced (Python). These are free programming languages that they can continue to use at home at no cost.
Cape Code is open to all Cape Cod students. Our first event registration is here, forward to anyone you think would want to attend
Cape Code CoderDojo is an open source, volunteer led movement orientated around running free coding clubs (Dojos) for young people between 7 - 17 years old. Participants will have the opportunity to work in small groups with mentors to learn how to code, develop websites, apps, programs, games and much more. Dojos are set up, run and led by volunteers. Dojos make development and learning to code a fun, sociable and awesome experience!

1) Do you need to be an experienced coder?
No. Cape Code's main goal is to open the world of programming to kids 7-17. Anyone can learn to code. We offer Scratch for beginners and Python for intermediate to advanced. We believe that coding is a critical life skill for kids, like learning to drive a car.
2) Do I need to bring my own computer?
You can, but if you would prefer Falmouth Academy has graciously offered its lab computers for the sessions
3) Who is Cape Code Coder Dojo open to?
Cape Code is a free event and open to all Cape Cod area kids on a first come first serve basis. When spots fill up, preference will be given to students who have not attended before.
4) Do you need volunteers?
Yes, we are looking for mentors to help grow Cape Code and bring coding to more Cape Cod area kids
