CoderDojo Dundalk


At CoderDojo Dundalk, they aim to encourage computing from a young age. Not only that, they want to help them be great at it! Computing is a hot area for employment here in Ireland and we believe that it’s here to stay. CoderDojo wants to get young people aged 8 and up involved, primary and secondary school students alike. Got kids who you think are technically minded? They should probably be at CoderDojo!

Next Dojo: Saturday 21st July (THIS Saturday!!!)

Location: PJ Carrolls building, DkIT, Dundalk, Louth, Ireland

 

Absolutely no programming experience is required, so if your child is interested in checking out computing, come along to a session and try it out!

Like all Dojos we try to make it relaxed, fun, cool and interesting. There are no lectures or classroom approaches involved. Instead it’s 100% hands-on coding with volunteer mentors available to help, to pass on their knowledge and of course, to keep them challenged!

Time: Specified Saturdays from 1pm-4pm. Tickets are free, but registration is essential. See here for more information

What you need to bring:

  • A packed lunch.
  • A laptop. Borrow one from someone if needs be.
  • A parent! (Very important). If you are 12 or under, your parent must stay with you during the session.

Topics: We currently cover HTML, CSS (website design & development) and Scratch (an introductory programming language developed in MIT). As the Dojo develops, we intend to cover a variety of other topics, including Databases, PHP, Python and Mobile Applications.

Now is the time to enter your business in the Louth Business Awards 2022. There are 23 categories of awards this year, giving you a fantastic selection to choose from.
