Seattle CoderDojo/Amazon Offers Free Coding Classes for Youth

Seattle CoderDojo is a free computer programming club for children 8-18, supported by sponsors and run by volunteers.

CoderDojo and Amazon are joining together to promote Hour of Code Dec. 9, 2017. They additionally offer weekly free coding classes throughout the year at Amazon’s Seattle campus. No coding experience is required to enroll in the classes, and students can start anytime.

The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify “code,” to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts. Check out the tutorials and activities. This grassroots campaign is supported by over 400 partners and 200,000 educators worldwide.
