Humans of CoderDojo


On the 22nd of February, CoderDojo WA hosted the fist “Humans of CoderDojo WA” night at Scitech. The event was an opportunity for community members to get together and discuss the amazing work they are doing in the coding community. Speakers on the night included:

Doug Bester – Sentient

Lisa Crofts – Shenton College

Anusuriya Devaraju – CSIRO

The event was a resounding success. A big thank you to Karen for the hours she put into organising the event. Also, a shout out to all the wonderful CoderDojo Champions, Mentors and Ninjas who helped out on the night. Keep an eye out for our follow up blog, with stories from our wonderful Humans of CoderDojo.

Joint Champion and Mentor Training event              

On the 27th of April, Scitech ran a joint Champion and Mentor training session in their science lecture theatre. There were 59 people in attendance and it was a great opportunity to learn about the CoderDojo program while also making connections in the community. There was an impressive number of Champion-Mentor connections made on the night, and hopefully we can continue this training format into the future. A massive thank you to the Professional Learning team at Scitech, particularly Gabrielle Migliore and Helen Oke, for organising and running the event.
