What is a CoderDojo? (also part of Code Club) 

At a regular CoderDojo, young people can learn how to code, develop websites, build apps, games and more. It makes learning to code a fun and sociable experience.

No previous coding experience is necessary. 

Bring your own Flash Drive if you wish to save what you create.
N:B the college network now requires that flash drives have a password.
If you join Scratch before coming to a club meeting (ask parents first) you can save your own Scratch games/activities to your own account as you create them. 

On the day you can bring along your own laptop. If you do not have your own laptop please still come along as there are computers you can use at the college.

Age group? This is a club for 7 - 17 years. Look for CoderDojo Moray on Eventbrite.
