Children learning to code
Second Saturday of the month, 10:30am-12:30pm

Coderdojo teaches children how to code, develop websites, apps, programmes, games and more. All sessions are run and taught by volunteers.

We run a martial arts-style grading system to measure and reward the coding abilities of all ninjas who come along from white belt to black belt. Come along to learn Scratch, HTML, Python, Javascript or just anything you need and join us on the journey to become a Coder Sensei.

Please bring a laptop and a charger. If you don't have one then we will organise one for you to use for the session.

Parents must be present. Suitable for 6 to 16 years old.

Please email for further information.
