Technohackers Coding Group
Ages 9+, Tuesday 3:15 to 5:00pm.
The Technohackers Coding Group is all about getting into coding and dreaming about the cool game they are going to create. You can start in this group without knowing what you are doing and work towards your own creations (not knowing what your doing is where we all start). This group is about learning coding to make games. We create games and we play games.
Some of us might get diverted into making and coding Robots. Because we can.
Contact Kevin for more information. Participants will need access to laptop, perseverance and a love of computer games. We have a couple spare laptops and are always looking for not-too-old donations. The group is supported by our older Technohackers who have become our helpful team of experts.
If you would like to join in here is the sign-up form for parents
If you are already a member and attending another group, just let Kevin know first to check there is space.
Other useful information:
- You do need your own laptop (or lug in a PC).
- We are using the Whangarei Club in Rust Ave. This is across the road from the old Library. There is parking for dropping off to the left of the building.
- The name “Technohackers” was created by the members. “Techno” is short for technology while “hackers” is shorthand for those of us that create, make, and generally modify technology to solve problems. There is no negative connotation to the word in our context.
- We are supported by a token payment per session ($5) and a voluntary but important membership ($10/week)
