Coder Dojo – Learn to Code

 

Northside Enterprise Centre Coder Dojo

Northside Enterprise Centre Coder Dojo is a cool, FREE environment where can learn to code, build websites, animated characters and games with different software programs and languages. The emphasis is on creating a fun, cool and funky learning environment where the children are encouraged to collaborate with their follow Coder’s and share information, tips and advice. These classes and events are run in our modern business centre, in Dublin.

The children are supervised by volunteer ‘Mentors’ who are available to help and support the children if necessary. There is no pressure placed on children, they are given support in helping them investigate and follow a path they are interested in, and hopefully through this method it gives them the interest and ability to continue learn how to code for website development or game or app development.

Northside Enterprise Centre is running a Coder Dojo for children aged 8 years to 12 years.
