What you need

Scratch (Most new ninjas will start with Scratch) 

  • Each student must bring along a laptop that is wifi enabled.
  • Make sure you have the necessary admin rights to that laptop to allow software to be installed and network access to be configured.
  • For students under 12, an accompanying parent must stay for the duration of the dojo session. Under the terms of our insurance only students participating in the dojo are covered so we cannot accept younger children accompanying parents during the session.
  • Please download and install this software on the laptop before attending your first Scratch session:
  • And finally, create a folder on your desktop called CoderDojo, where you can save all of your work.

Digital Makers

  • Each student must bring a laptop that is wifi enabled and a Raspberry Pi if they have one (and any other bits of kit they might have).
  • Make sure you have the necessary admin rights to that laptop to allow software to be installed and network access to be configured.
  • For students under 12, an accompanying parent must stay for the duration of the dojo session. Under the terms of our insurance only students participating in the dojo are covered so we cannot accept younger children accompanying parents during the session.

The best places to buy stuff would be from one of the sites below but always check to see what you have in the house before buying, and make sure you know what’s in the kit. The Raspberry Pi 3 is what we’ll use and is about £30 on its own. I’ll go through what you need in the class but if anyone wants to get their Pi beforehand we can help them set it up in the class.
