Free inaugural Coderdojo Computer Programming Event - Sat 25 Oct

The Curriculum Innovation Service is pleased to announce it will be hosting the inaugural Bradford CoderDojo meeting on Saturday 25 October at the Innovation Centre Bradford. Schools are asked to pass this information to students in Key Stage 2 and 3 who have an interest in computer programming.

CoderDojo is a global volunteer-led community of free programming clubs for young  people between aged between 7 and 17.

There is a focus on community, peer learning, youth mentoring and self-led learning with an emphasis on openness, helping others and showing how coding is a force for change in the world.

Most importantly, CoderDojo is about encouraging creativity and having fun with technology in a social environment.  CoderDojo makes development and learning to code a fun, sociable experience.

We are working with other programming enthusiasts and experts across the Bradford area to run the Bradford CoderDojo; if you would like to get involved in the running of the Dojo please contact Paul Scott on bradford.uk@coderdojo.com.

The first Dojo is open to any child in Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 and is limited to 30 students.  The event will run from 9.30 - 11.30 at The Innovation Centre, Bradford Design Exchange, 34 Peckover Street, Little Germany, BD1 5BD and is free to attend. 

To attend you have to bring your own laptop and attend with an adult member of your family who will remain with you throughout the session.
