Coding Dojo

7 - 17 years

A Dojo is a local, independent, volunteer-led programming club that is a part of the global CoderDojo community. While each Dojo shares the ethos of CoderDojo there is no typical Dojo and the activities run vary from club to club however they all show young people how to code and develop software, as well as themselves, and explore technology by working with others and presenting their work.

All Dojos are inherently different and are influenced by volunteer mentors who facilitate them. Our Dojos do not resemble a classroom environment, it is a space facilitated by mentors who encourage young people to explore and create technology. Attendees, otherwise known as Ninjas are strongly encouraged to work with one another through peer mentoring and self-led learning.
