What happens at a dojo?
During the session, we have clusters of tables for each area of topics, e.g. Raspberry Pi, Scratch, HTML, etc. We like people to take an interest in all the different area and welcome them to try out different thing.

Who are the Mentors/Volunteers ?
Our mentors are main from IT industry or teachers.

Do Parents have to Stay?
If you are 13 or under, then a parent or guardian has to stay with you. If you’re over 13, then we will ask for details of an emergency contact person.

What do I need to bring?
The only thing you really need to bring is your imagination!

Aside from that, a few other things will be helpful:

A Laptop/mac/chrome book – if you have your own equipment please bring it with you (don’t forget the charger!). If you don’t have one, we have a couple of spares and we also have Raspberry Pi computers.
If you have your own Raspberry Pi feel free to bring it along – that way you can carry on the fun at home! Please remember your power supply, mouse, keyboard, SD card and monitors.

What else can I do to get ready?
Although you don’t need that much to come along and get coding, it might make things go a bit more smoothly if you can set up a couple of things beforehand. Don’t worry if you get stuck, getting started is always the hardest bit we will be able to get you over most hurdles.

Some software you can install:

Scratch – Scratch is an easy to use graphical programming language you can use to make games and animations. 

Python Editor – We recommend using Thonny.
