With the new school year upon us, there was quite a lot of attention on the inclusion of coding lessons. Hence, Steven was featured in a (somewhat binary) discussion on the Manchester Evening News website, whilst CoderDojo regular Johnathan regular helped BBC FiveLive presenters understand computing (go to 25mins)!
Plus – a great blog from 12 year old Harry, about his experience of #mcrCoderDojo – thanks Harry!
The second wave of tickets for Manchester CoderDojo are now out – we look forward to seeing many of you next week.
