Margaret River CoderDojo returns for young Ninjas

The Margaret River CoderDojo is back for 2018 at the Margaret River Library.  

Local youth aged between 7 and 17 years of age can attend the club to learn new skills and collaborate on challenges involving coding, robotics and game design.

The club is hosted at the Margaret River Library at 4pm every Friday during the school term.

Shire of Augusta Margaret River Library Technician Jodie Porter said the club offered a social forum for students who are interested in coding.

“The CoderDojo offers a social way for local youth to exercise their creativity and learn new coding skills along the way,” she said.

“We had a wonderful diverse group of Ninjas attending in 2017, and are looking forward to welcoming new and existing club members for 2018.

“There are some awesome robotics challenges planned for the first term.”

Ms Porter thanked the community members who supported the club, including the Lions Club and the volunteer Mentors who supervise the club sessions.

“The club relies on volunteer Mentors to supervise and challenge the Ninjas every Friday,” Ms Porter said.

“Any community members who are interested in being CoderDojo Mentors are invited to contact the Margaret River Library.”
