My wife found out about a CoderDojo chapter around Denver and I started taking my oldest child to check it out. I was curious if he’d enjoy it, since he has a very logical, analytical mind. Turns out he’s pretty good at figuring out solutions, but his favorite by far has been working with Scratch.
Over the course of the year, I’ve found several ways to mentor and be a part of the group and ended up being a “champion” mentor, making lots of technical decisions and writing some software to track student’s progress, attendance, contact information, and so on.
