Collaborative Learning at CoderDojo


Science Gallery is hosting a cool hangout for teens interested in computer coding. The CoderDojo is a club for young people, held every Saturday afternoon, that "puts the real power of the internet and technology in the hands of the Irish youth". It's a great opportunity for young people to come together and learn more about coding, web and app design and, of course, to have some fun! The idea is to share what you are doing and to learn from each other! The Dojo is open to anyone aged 10 to 18 and you'll need to bring a laptop (if you have one) and lunch. Anyone below the age of 16 will need to be accompanied by a parent!

CoderDojo's are held in several locations around the country: in Kerry; Cork; Kinsale; Limerick; Drogheda and in Dublin's Science Gallery. There is also a dojo planned for London! To find out when and where your next session is occurring visit their website. The next CoderDojo in Science Gallery takes place this Saturday, January 7th, from 12:30pm to 3:30pm. Those interested are asked to pre-register on the Science Gallery website. We'd love to hear from people involved in CoderDojo. Leave a comment below and share your experience!
