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 likeminded people and are exposed to the possibilities of technology.
Within the CoderDojo 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.
Spraoi agus Spórt are looking to set up a CoderDojo in Carndonagh and are working with Inishowen Development Partnership and St Patrick’s Girls School in an effort to achieve this.
If you would like to become involved as a mentor please get in touch and help us get this great idea started in Carndonagh.
