Mentor at a CoderDojo
We've been running Design Club tracks at Dojos in London. Use our resources to run your own Design Club track.
What you need to run a Design Club track
If you run a Dojo, grab our resources. Alternatively, See how to connect with a Dojo below.
You'll need a lead mentor and support mentors. We recommend a ratio of 1 mentor to 4 children.
We're developing resources to run Design Club tracks, including worksheets and delivery guides.
How to connect with a Dojo

What's expected of mentors
To get the toolkit for lead mentors, see our resources.
A lead mentor is expected to:
  • Make sure everything is ready to run a Design Club
  • Coordinate a small team of mentors
  • Support our development by sending us feedback
All mentors are expected to:
  • Guide children through activities
  • Encourage reflection and design thinking mindsets
  • Create a fun learning environment
Design Club offers a unique view on the technical space for kids, giving them a broader view of what technical design and implementation means. Design Club is by far my most favourite material to teach kids!
