2 New Activities for term 3 2019

In term 3 we will be introducing 2 exciting new activities to our mix:

3D Computer Aided Design

Learn how to make 3D models using Tinkercad. Tinkercad is an easy-to-use 3D computer aided design (CAD) tool. You can quickly turn your idea into a CAD model for a 3D printer with Tinkercad.

Python & micro:bit

The BBC micro:bit is a handheld, programmable micro-computer that can be used for all sorts of cool creations, from robots to musical instruments – the possibilities are endless. In this group you will learn to program in Python while interacting with the micro:bit.


CoderDojo is FREE but registration is required as there are limited spaces available. Registration is by term. New people are still welcome to join after the term starts if we still have spaces available. You can email us at coderdojonelson@gmail.com and we’ll let you know if spaces are available or put you on a waiting list.

Note: Term 3 is underway. Registration will be open again prior to next term. You can contact us if you want to be added to the mailing list for next term or would like to trial CoderDojo for a session this term.
