On Saturday 22 August, the computer programming club CoderDojo is hosting a demonstration of new, unreleased Scratch projects created by Raspberry Pi that will give young people a chance to experience what it’s like to be a coding tester.

The demonstration starts at 1.00pm and you will need to book by emailing libraryvolunteer@richmond.gov.uk.

Richmond CoderDojo is a free coding club open to those aged 7 to 17 with sessions on developing websites, apps, and games; or programming robots and other electronic devices.

Cllr John Coombs, Lead Member for Arts and Libraries, said:

“CoderDojo is a great volunteer-led global movement that allows like-minded young people to learn how to code in a fun and sociable way.

“In usual circumstances, CoderDojo involves meeting up but it’s great that sessions are still taking place via Zoom so that young people can continue to develop important tech literacy skills.

“If you are reading this and have computer coding knowledge, CoderDojo Richmond are looking for volunteer mentor so please email libraryvolunteer@richmond.gov.uk if you would like to be involved!”
