CoderDojo, The Studio, Liverpool

CoderDojo is a global movement of free, volunteer-led,  community based 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.

At The Studio we host regular free CoderDojo sessions for young people interested in advancing their digital skills.

Coming in the next academic year!

All young people under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Students are asked to bring a packed lunch.

**** NO REPRODUCTION FEE **** 8/06/2014 : DUBLIN : Pictured was coders John David White (age 10) and Kyle Walsh (age 11) from Dungarvan . Coding whizzkids came in their droves to DCU this weekend to demo a dizzying array of cool and imaginative coding ideas at the CoderDojo Coolest Projects awards ceremony. The Coolest Projects Awards, now in its third year, is an opportunity for members of local coding clubs or dojos to showcase the application of the skills and knowledge they have gained from attending their weekly coding sessions.  The event has gone from strength to strength each year with 250 projects being presented on Saturday to an expert judging panel. This year, support from Liberty Global, parent company of UPC and the largest international cable company, allowed the CoderDojo to increase the reach of the event to include projects from dojos in the UK, the Netherlands, Poland and Romania.
