Hi ninjas and parents,
Unfortunately, we can’t find enough mentors to fill out a make-up dojo to replace March’s lock-out, so we’ll have to wait for April. I know, it’s a bummer. But you can checkout the Learning Resources on the CoderDojo wiki (“Kata”) for challenges and new things to learn in the meantime. And if you have any questions, ping one of our mentors on the CoderDojo platform (coderdojo.com).
I’ve also got assurances from our host that they’ve put measures in place to make sure we don’t get locked out again and they already have people lined up for the next three dojos to make sure we won’t be out in the cold!
Parents and Ninja! Please register on the global CoderDojo webite at https://zen.coderdojo.com/dojo/us/saint-louis-mo/st-louis
