What does your child want to learn? The philosophy of CoderDojo is peer learning and self-taught. Almost every Dojo uses Scratch, though there will also be other languages to explore. If there's a language your child wants to learn more about, just let us know and we'll make it happen.
We do not follow the National curriculum, nor do we provide homework. Everyone seems to learn best when they can play and have fun.
Laptop is a requirement for most Dojos. Not an iPad or a tablet. Some Dojo's will have special Dojos where they'll provide all the required equipment, though most of the time your child will code on their own laptop. Please do contact if you'd like to discuss this point.
Registrations are a must! A parent and child ticket must be booked to attend.
We will never ask for your child's name on the booking form, we just need to know how many children you will be bringing.
Most registrations will be via Eventbrite.
Places are limited, so if you register and do not show up, that is a real pity for someone else who wanted to come but didn't have a spot.
If you have to cancel please let us know in time by emailing your local Dojo or, better yet, by canceling your ordered ticket directly in Eventbrite. That way, someone on the waiting list might still be able to join.
Yes, if your child's age is below 14. Even if your child is older, we always promote parents being around to be involved.
100% free and always will be. CoderDojo is run by a committed, fun loving volunteers and corporate partners. Want to also join in, check out how to by clicking here.
