CoderDojo heads to Electric Picnic to code!

CoderDojo will have a special Pop Up Dojo at the Electric Picnic music festival in Stradbally Estate, Co. Laois! The festival takes on Aug 29th – 31st. At our “Electric Picnic Pop Up Dojo”, located in Mindfield, we’ll be giving young people (aged 7 – 17) and their parents the opportunity to get a taste of it’s like to attend a CoderDojo. As always the sessions will be free, fun and interactive! No previous experience of working with technology is required, for either the attending child or their parent / guardian!


The Coding /Gaming / Music making sessions will be 45 minutes long, free of charge! Sessions will be hosted on:

  • Friday 29th from 5pm to 7pm
  • Saturday 30th from 12pm to 7pm
  • Sunday 31st from 12pm to 7pm

Each session will start “on the hour” and will facilitate 12 young coders. Each child must be accompanied by a parent / guardian. Places will be initially allocated on a “first come, first served” basis with pre registration available for those who turn up at a full session and want to return for the next one.


The sessions will cover:

  • Scratch Workshops                           (Beginner coding)
  • Raspberry Pi Gaming                        (Intermediate / Advanced)
  • MaKey MaKey Musical Instruments       (Fun for all)

In addition to the sessions that we’re running for kids, members of the CoderDojo Foundation team will be available at our tent in Mindfield at Electric Picnic to explain how; kids, young people, adults & businesses can participate at Dojos or support CoderDojo. We look forward to seeing you there!
