Regional Development Australia DD&SW | Welcome



State Library of Queensland

This jointly funded project will provide assessable funding for the Local Government Areas (LGA’s) within the Darling Downs and South West region to support their regional and remote libraries deliver the State Library of Queensland’s (SLQ) Coding and Robotics Program. The funding will provide resources and training to library staff and community members to deliver the coding classes to students of those communities. 

With the introduction of coding into the Queensland State curriculum, it is imperative that regional and remote communities have exposure to robotics and coding, similarly to that of their metropolitan equals. Additionally it is important that extra-curricular opportunities exist, so those students with an interest and aptitude for coding and STEM, can progress that interest, the same as those with an interest or ability for sport or dance.

Coder Dojo Toowoomba

Coder Dojo is a global movement of free, volunteer-led, community based coding and programming clubs for young people. At a Dojo, young people, between 7 and 17, learn how to code, develop websites, apps, programs, games and explore technology in an informal and creative environment. In addition to learning to code attendees meet like-minded people and are exposed to the possibilities of technology.

Within the Coder Dojo Movement there is a focus on community, peer learning, youth mentoring and self-led learning, with an emphasis on showing how coding is a force for change in the world.

Coder Dojo Toowoomba is operated through the Canvas Co-working/Toowoomba Start-up Centre. RDA DDSW has partnered with the Toowoomba Regional Council as foundation supporters of Coder Dojo Toowoomba. RDA DDSW has supported the Toowoomba Start-up chapter since its inception through support of their Start-up/pitch weekends and Gov Hack weekends.
