What is CoderDojo.png

The international CoderDojo movement WAS founded in 2011 by Irish teen James Whelton. since then, the movement has grown to more than 1,600 verified Dojos in 75 countries

CoderDojo is a volunteer-led community of free local programming clubs for young people. At our Dojo, kids between 7 and 17 learn how to code, develop websites, apps, games and explore technology using MIT Scratch, HTML, JavaScript and more!

There is a focus on community, collaborative creativity and self-led learning with an emphasis on helping others and showing how coding is a force for change in the world! Most importantly, CoderDojo is about encouraging creativity and having fun in a social environment. CoderDojo makes development and learning to code a fun, sociable, safe experience.

Our Dojo is organized, run and mentored by volunteers (many of whom are parents) and since CoderDojo’s inception, all Dojos have been completely free and open to all young people who wish to attend.
