MegaDojo is a chance for your wider local community to experience a Dojo for a day and to see the mentors in action. It should be a safe space where children, mentors, parents, and sponsors who have an interest in ICT and STEM education can come together. Above all, it should be a relaxed, structured introduction for kids and parents to what CoderDojo is all about.
You should offer:
- Varied hands-on workshops on all levels of HTML, Scratch, and micro:bit
- Enough mentors to give the Ninjas adequate support (1 mentor for every 6–10 young people)
- A ‘questions and answers’ stand where newcomers and parents can chat to you about their queries and about all things CoderDojo: technologies, activities, and events
You could also offer:
- Engaging live demonstrations of coding tools and electronics kits for learners
