CoderDojo, a worldwide movement of free programming clubs, has a new chapter in Round Rock. The club meets every Sunday from 4 to 6 p.m. at the TechShop Austin-Round Rock at 120 Sundance Parkway.
CoderDojo Round Rock hosts up to 30 students, aged 7 to 17, per session. At each session, mentors guide the students. The sessions foster informal and collaborative learning through project work, exploration and peer mentoring.
Although sessions are free, students must register for each session in order to attend. Students 12 and younger must have a parent accompany them.
Garima Singh, a junior at Westwood High School, founded the Round Rock chapter. TechShop Austin-Round Rock is one of eight locations in the U.S. to host cutting-edge tools, equipment and computers to foster collaborative innovation.
