Information

For those kids who haven’t been to CoderDojo Belfast previously we provide a 2/3 session induction programme.

Unfortunately this is extremely popular. We can only accommodate a fixed number of new starts at any one time and tickets sell out fast!

What you need to bring:

If you have one, a laptop. If not we have machines that you can use.
If you do not have a laptop please try to bring a USB memory stick to save your work on!
You MUST be accompanied by a parent or guardian if you are under 14! (Very important). Your parent/guardian must stay with you during the session.

Who can attend:

We accept new coders all the time, so if you want to start just get a ticket below! Please note it is currently first come first served.
You must be aged between 6-16 (aged 6-10 for Lego Mindstorms, 10+ for ‘normal’ Dojo).
You must have an interest in computers and how to program them even if you haven’t done this before.
We require a parent or guardian to accompany and stay with under 14s.

Format:

For those who haven’t been before you will be taken through 3 week induction which consists of classroom based lessons on Gamemaker and AppInventor.
For those who have already completed the 3 week induction (or attended 3 weeks of CoderDojo Belfast before) you can follow along with various tutorials in technologies such as:

  • Gamemaker
  • AppInventor (Android mobile phone apps)
  • HTML/CSS/Web
  • Raspberry Pi
  • Java
  • Others coming soon!

Assistance with the tutorials will be provided by the mentors.
If you are already working on a project (in any technology) come along to see if we can be of assistance!

For kids aged 6-10 we occasionally run Lego Mindstorms sessions. Please see here for further information.
