What is CoderDojo ?

A CoderDojo provides a free, safe and fun environment for children 5 to 17 years of age learn to code. At Dojos children have the opportunity to discover and understand the technology which shapes the world they live in. There are CoderDojo clubs (Dojos) in over 51 countries which meet regularly to learn new and important skills. In these clubs children learn how to build websites, apps, video games and much more.

Young people who attend Dojos also learn complementary skills of logical thinking, problem solving, presentation and communication skills. There is a focus on community, peer learning, mentorship and self led learning with an emphasis on openness, helping others and showing how coding is a force for change in the world. Most importantly CoderDojo is about encouraging creativity and having fun with technology in a social environment. CoderDojo makes development and learning to code a fun, sociable, rewarding experience.
