CoderDojo is a worldwide collaboration which provides free and open learning to young people within programming technology. It’s a volunteer movement which is oriented around running free not-for-profit coding clubs and regular sessions for young people aged 7 to 17. The classes help young people learn how to code, develop websites, apps, programs, games and explore technology in an informal and creative environment. Students attending not only learn how to code but also have the opportunity to meet like-minded people and are exposed to the new possibilities of technology. Within the CoderDojo movement there is a focus on community, peer learning, youth mentoring and self led learning, with an emphasis on showing how coding is a force for change in the world. CoderDojo Brisbane is currently operating in seven locations around Brisbane, including Sunnybank Hills Library, Carindale Library, Brisbane Square Library, Grange Library, Holland Park Library, Kenmore Library and Chermside Library.

Coding Kids is an organisation that teaches children in Years 2-6 to build their own games, animation, interactive stories and digital art. Coding Kids provides fun, productive activities outside and during school hours and during school holidays. During the classes children build games such as Pac-Man, Tetris, Flappy Bird, Breakout, Space Invaders and Angry Birds. Coding Kids teaches kids that digital literacy is just as important as traditional literacy and numeracy. Children learn technology creation rather than just technology consumption by creating games and learning how to produce multimedia projects. Through their creations and with a focus on play, imagination and exploration children discover computer thinking, logic and design in a fun way. Computer clubs are offered by Coding Kids at schools and community halls around Brisbane and South East Queensland. Classes are currently held at Norman Park State School and Ashgrove State School, as well as various halls around Brisbane. To find your nearest location click here.
