Two new training modules!

Explore the text-based programming language, Python, and share three resources to help you teach it.
New resources for all ages

Connect with the community on Slack
Slack brings the CoderDojo community and their passions together in one place. Discussions are organised into topic-specific channels. You can type and share documents, and hop on a voice or video call all from within the CoderDojo Global Slack. It’s available in the browser and as an app (desktop or mobile).
