Take part in our Clubs Conference

We are excited to announce that CoderDojo and Code Club, along with the wider Raspberry Pi Foundation family, will host the first-ever Clubs Conference from Friday 24 to Saturday 25 March 2023 at Churchill College, Cambridge, CB3 0DS, UK and we’d like to invite you to join us!

The Clubs Conference is a participatory event that gives volunteers and educators the chance to explore the innovative ways adults are supporting young people to create with technology. 

What you can look forward to

On Friday 24 March you’ll have the opportunity to register early and attend an informal networking event to connect with other community members. 

On Saturday expect a day filled with learning opportunities that includes:

  • Thought-provoking talks and keynotes
  • Hands-on, easy-to-follow workshops across a range of programming topics
  • Plenty of informal chats, meetups, and opportunities for you to connect with others

If the pandemic taught us anything, it is the value of connecting with others in person. Join us to learn from others running clubs in diverse contexts, develop your creative making skills, and share your own insights.

Would you like to share your own experiences and skills at the event? We are also looking for community members to share or host:

  • Project demos (Friday afternoon only)
  • Posters
  • Workshops
  • Discussion sessions
  • Presentations
  • Ignite talks

Take a moment to reflect on what you would like to contribute to the conference that would benefit other volunteers and educators. Let us know your idea for a session or poster on the registration form below and we’ll be in touch to hear more. We’re also interested in hearing about any topics you’d like to see explored at the conference, even if you aren’t able to deliver the session yourself!

Interested in attending the conference?

Although we would like to welcome everyone to join us in person in Cambridge, the venue offers limited capacity. To help manage the numbers of volunteers and educators attending the conference, we are providing an expression of interest form before tickets become available in the new year. 

If you plan to attend or contribute to the event in Cambridge in March 2023, please fill in the form below. We hope to welcome all those who wish to attend and contribute to the conference, but we are unable to guarantee this at this time. 

Bursaries available for those in Ireland and the UK

To help those who would love to participate but feel the costs of travelling could prohibit them from attending, we are including the option for people to apply for a travel bursary. 

We are only able to offer a contribution towards travel and accommodation to a limited number of community members who would otherwise be unable to attend the conference. To be eligible for consideration, you must:

  • Be registered as a club leader or volunteer at a Code Club or Dojo within the UK or Ireland
  • Be available to attend the Clubs Conference in Cambridge
  • Have submitted an application to attend the conference

If you are based outside of the UK or Ireland and have any questions about the Clubs Conference or bursary scheme, please contact Isabel Ronaldson, our Global Community Coordinator, on [email protected]

Join us remotely

To make the conference accessible to our wider CoderDojo and Code Club communities, and for those unable to attend in person, we are planning to live stream some of the talks and keynotes online. If you are unable to attend the event in Cambridge and would like to be kept informed of the online elements of the event, please register below.
