A group of 20 students had the opportunity
to conquer the challenges that computers, iPads,
Kindles and iPhones pose to them courtesy Dig-
icel and the UWI, when they participated in the
first CoderDojo in the Caribbean.
CoderDojo in T&T is organised by Garrett Quinn
of Digicel s Business Solutions, and Dr Andrew
Borg, lecturer in computer science at UWI.
A release from Digicel said this exciting oppor-
tunity for techy kids, began in T&T in March and
provided a forum for young inventors between
the ages of seven and 17 to learn how to
code, develop Web sites, apps, programmes, games
and much more.
In addition to learning to code, Coder Club
participants meet children with similar interests
and talents and are given the opportunity to show
off what they ve been working on. Students ranged
in age from Daniel at six years old, to Sebastien
who is 14 and took part in eight sessions over a
five-month period which ended on July 5.
The children were given the challenge to develop
projects which ranged from football and educa-
tional games as well as a game that simulated a
trip to the vet with your pet. Each student was
assigned a mentor to help them along in the proj-
ect. Projects were worked on during the CoderDojo
sessions and were continued at home during the
participant s spare time.
At the graduating ceremony to which parents
and mentors were invited, each student was
required to stand before the audience, do a pres-
entation on their project and give a demonstration
of how it actually worked. Such was the high
standard of delivery that every student was given
a huge round of applause at the end of their pres-
The gathering then received inspiring messages
from Digicel CEO John Delves, UWI Computing
and Information Technology department head Dr
Permanand Mohan, Dr Borg and Quinn.
Students were then presented with a certificate
of achievement for participating in the CoderDojo.

T&T chapter of CoderDojo continuing later this
comes to T&T
