2022 PLANS – IMPORTANT UPDATE

Hello Parents.

Recently, some of the CoderDojo Navan team met online to discuss how and when we might be able to resume the classes again. Unfortunately the Unity Centre still has Covid restrictions in place and therefore it’s still not feasible to run any classes there at this time.

Even on October 22nd (when some easing of restrictions will be announced), we’re still unsure as to what impact this may have on the Unity Centre. Therefore we have decided that we will try running the new season of classes in February 2022. Hopefully most restrictions will be eased then, allowing us to utilise the rooms at nearer full capacity.

Before we start planning ahead, we would love to get your feedback and suggestions for the next classes. Please can you complete the online survey for all those Parents interested in starting/resuming their children in the classes.

CODERDOJO – ONLINE SCRATCH PROJECTS

Due to the current  Covid restrictions, unfortunately we’re still not able to run our normal face-to-face CoderDojo classes this year. In the meantime, we have 1 Scratch project (Beginners or Advanced) we’d like you to attempt over the next 2 weeks.

Scratch Beginners
Rockband – https://projects.raspberrypi.org/en/projects/rock-band
Learn how to code your own musical instruments using scratch

Scratch Advanced
Scratch the Cat goes Skiing – https://projects.raspberrypi.org/en/projects/scratch-cat-goes-skiing
A simple Scrolling game

This is open to everyone, even if you have never attended the CoderDojo classes before.

If this is your first time using Scratch, please install Scratch on your PC/laptop, if it is not there already – Scratch is free and can be downloaded here: https://scratch.mit.edu/download

We would also advise, if you haven’t already done so, to sign up to Scratch so that you can save your project directly onto the Scratch site.

We’re planning to post more projects/resources in the coming weeks, so please check this website and our Facebook page for more details.

Happy Coding!
