CoderDojo @ Digital Lounge @ Upper Norwood Library Hub (Teal Room)
Nov 23 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
CoderDojo @ Digital Lounge @ Upper Norwood Library Hub (Teal Room) | England | United Kingdom

Dojos are relaxed and fun programming clubs for young people. Providing an opportunity to get creative and try new things. We are happy to welcome one as part of our digital lounge initiative.

Local Mentor Si Hammond brings his Dojo to Upper Norwood Library Hub from Sydenham Community Library. It is open to young people aged 7 to 17 (although under 12s must be accompanied by an adult).

No experience necessary BUT booking essential 

Event Details

Please bring:

  • A laptop if you have one. This frees up spares for those that don’t have one.
  • A parent! (Very important). If you are 12 or under, your parent must stay with you during the session.

What we do:

Scratch is a great way to start learning with drag-and-drop graphical blocks that just click together like LEGO. There are a variety of simple step-by-step projects to make animations, games and get familiar with how they work.

Python is a text-based programming language for building more complex programs — including many ‘real-world’ applications. However, it’s still simple to get into and can be run in the browser via sites like https://trinket.io/python

HTML and CSS are the instructions for how a web page is structured and how it looks. Build a webpage and then share it online!

JavaScript makes a webpage interactive. Everything from responding to clicks to recording video!

User accounts:

At the CoderDojo, we use a number of online resources that allow you to save your work so that you can continue working on it at home or next time at the CoderDojo.

If you are using Scratch, sign up for a Scratch account here: https://scratch.mit.edu/

If you are using HTML or Python, we use a website called Trinket and you can sign up so you can save your trinkets here: https://trinket.io/sign-up

Remember to bring your Scratch and/or Trinket username and password when you come to the CoderDojo

Father Christmas in the Library @ www.uppernorwoodlibraryhub.org
Nov 30 @ 10:00 am – Dec 24 @ 4:00 pm

BOOK TICKETS

30th November – 24th December

Deep in the recesses of the Upper Norwood Library Hub building a lost room has been discovered. This hidden hallow is home to ancient and rare books only a library can preserve. This is Father Christmas’s secret reading room. A sanctuary for him to rest, think and invent new toys. He is inviting you to come and visit him and share your Christmas tales.

Add that extra bit of magic to the festive season for your little ones and book a visit to see Father Christmas in the cosy family setting of the Upper Norwood Library Hub.

Every child walks away with a bespoke badge, an autographed Christmas tale from Father Christmas and a polaroid photograph to remember their time. For the very young we also have a sensory experience which involves light and Christmas music.

Come be part of the story and support the ongoing use of public buildings as places to meet and inspire.

Our Aims:

  • To supply a gift that will be remembered in years to come
  • To make the tickets free for parents
  • A place where reading is championed
  • A place of magic and wonder
  • A home where books and stories take precedent over toys and technology
  • A place that does not forget about the very young
  • A place where children are reminded they can create their own stories
  • To charge the children under £10 each

Booking Tickets:

  • We advise you book in advance as this event can sell out
  • When you book your ticket you are asked to arrive at the start of your half hour slot you will then book in to see Santa
  • All children must be accompanied by an adult of 18 years or older
  • We will try and fit all adults in the event but be prepared that only one parent or guardian may be allowed per child
  • If you would like to book more than 6 children per slot then please e mail Norman at norman.murray@unlt.org or call us. Our details are on our website.
  • We try and make all our slots private but be prepared your child may need to share their time with Santa with other children
  • All tickets are nonrefundable but we will do what we can to find you another visit slot
