Programming lessons for 11 to 15 year olds.

The sessions are held at my Office on Saturdays once a fortnight. Or thereabouts.

It's based on (but not associated with) things like code.org and CoderDojo

I plan to initially use Scratch, Python and Guido van Robot.

The initial focus will be on basic programming.
Advanced topics like Cryptography, World domination and TV retuning will be covered in later classes.

Do I have to bring a laptop/computer?

You can bring a laptop if you want but it's not required as Computers will be supplied.

Do I (the parent/guardian/benevolent-overlord) have to stay?

Feel free to pull up a chair and have a cup of coffee. Or run and enjoy a half-day off.
Note that unclaimed kids will be sold on eBay.

What's the secret mystery surprise?

It's a secret mystery that I'll surprise the kids with at the end of the session.

Where is it?

At my office in Mile End with off-street parking and conveniently close to public transport.

When is it?

Check the Schedule.

How much does it cost?

Nothing.

Any contributions are passed on to a very worthy cause.

Where do I sign up?!?!?!?!

Send me an email.

Who comes up with these questions?

I do. At least until I get some from you, in which case I'll include them, and their answers, here.
