CoderDojo Charlottesville develops computer science skills among public school students in grades K-12, regardless of the level of their computer programming knowledge and experience. Students receive instruction on computer coding, web page development, robotics, and the design and development of computer apps and video games.
Summer Academy 2016
CoderDojo Charlottesville has a new look this summer. We’ll be using the exciting spaces in and around the Albemarle High School Library.
When CoderDojo participants arrive this summer they’ll be able to move toward the area and emphasis best for themselves:
- Music, Math, Coding “M2C” -
- We’ll be exploring math, music, and coding together, as students learn to manipulate technology to create and support music.
- Multiage Coding -
- Kodu, Scratch, and LiveCode - students will work through challenges each day that move them through the basics of coding and game development.
- Engineering Challenges -
- Different coding challenges allow teams to work in HTML, on Raspberry Pi or Arduino, with 3D printing, in App Development
- Help Desk Curriculum -
- Want to be part of your school’s help desk? Let’s learn the skills
Three kinds of tickets are available for each of our two 4-day sessions:
Session 1: Monday - Thursday, July 12-15
Session 2: Monday - Thursday, July 19-22
- CoderDojo is open to students in grades K-12 but children under age 7 will need to have parents on hand.
- General Tickets are available to Albemarle County Public School students only.
- Volunteer Priority Tickets are available to students whose parents volunteer to attend with them and help support the activities for all children in attendance.
- Non-Resident Tickets are for students who do not attend an ACPS school. These are priced at $100.00 per session, which helps us defray the substantial costs of running this event.
- Students will be limited to signing up for one 4-day session this year, and additional registrations will be cancelled.
