Derry CoderDojo is a free coding club for kids aged 8-16 years who have a passion for all things computer-related. We cover many topics at our sessions including HTML, mobile application development, games development, coding languages, Raspberry Pi, Arduino, LEGO Mindstorm and much more.
We hold sessions every second Saturday at Magee Campus, University of Ulster from 11am to 1pm. To find out when our next event is, check out our Eventbrite page or see the list of upcoming events on the right of this page.
We often take part in external events, either by providing an information stand to promote Derry CoderDojo, holding demonstrations of projects we have been working on or hosting workshops on Scratch games development and HTML web development. Over the past few years we have collaborated with a wide range of companies and organisations in both attending and hosting events. These have included CoderDojo Foundation, CultureTECH, STEMAware, Loughs Agency, Go Beserk, Cunamh ICT, US Embassy Dublin, Trinity College Dublin, Mozilla, Triax, Creggan Neighbourhood Partnership, Uproar Comics, Ulster University, Business In The Community, BEAM Centre, BBC Make It Digital and more. If you would like us to attend one of your events feel free to get in touch and we will do our best to meet your needs.
All our mentors participate on a voluntary basis and are either currently undertaking university studies or are in full-time work within the IT/design industry. All mentors have submitted their information to AccessNI to receive clearance for working with children.
