We award wristbands for major achievements at CoderDojo Denver to reward you for doing great work! Show your friends what you’re building and achieving at CoderDojo and invite them too!
The CoderDojo website will allow us to award you virtual “badges” for achievements as you finish lessons. The “badges” we mention below are part of coderdojo.com so you have to be registered there – talk to a mentor about it!!
CoderDojo has recently changed their lessons, though, so we need to re-think some of our belt requirements below – we’d love your input!
Belts are earned in order and you can not skip a color.
