What is Rebecca CoderDojo? 

Rebecca CoderDojo is a safe and fun coding club for girls, ages 8-16. We are an independent chapter of the global CoderDojo movement, which fosters creation of free coding clubs for young people led by groups of volunteers.

Mission

Rebecca CoderDojo is a Code Savvy initiative in memory of Rebecca Schatz, founder and former executive director of Code Savvy, for her lasting inspiration to encourage all of us, especially kids, to explore technology and be our own innovators. We aim to sustain this inspiration by providing a learning environment for girls to explore coding and become innovators of technology.


How to get involved
We need volunteers! We welcome everyone from educators to software engineers. If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the google form (http://tinyurl.com/zwb2qfl) and we’ll follow up! 


Results
So far in 2016, Rebecca CoderDojo has held 4 sessions, and welcomed over 125 young female coders!


What we teach

Scratch:
Scratch is a fun, easy to use way to program your own stories, games and animations.  It's recommended for any new coder, and for girls ages 8-10. Our friendly mentors will get you started, and if you like you can continue at home;  Scratch is free and works in any browser.




AppInventor:
AppInventor is a programming language that you can use to create apps for Android devices. Our friendly mentors will help you learn the basics of this open-source, web based language so you can design code and play with your own mobile apps!




Arduino:
Want to control things in the real world through computer programming? In this group, you'll go step-by-step wiring lights, sounds, and sensors through an Arduino board into a computer, then programming them to do cool things!




Python:
Python is a general-purpose, versatile, and popular programming language. It is concise and easy to read. It can be used for everything from web development to software development and scientific applications.




Schedule and Tickets:
Rebecca CoderDojo is free, but you must register in advance and space is strictly limited to provide the best possible experience for these young coders and their mentors, who are generously volunteering their time and expertise.
