What is the Clubs Conference?
The Clubs Conference is a weekend of learning and connecting for volunteers and educators involved in CoderDojo and Code Club. It will take place in Churchill College, Cambridge, UK on Friday 24 and Saturday 25 March 2023.
What can I look forward to?
On Friday 24 March you’ll have the opportunity to register early from 14:00. Join us for discussion sessions and a welcome speech, followed by a networking evening at 17:30.
On Saturday 25 March, expect a whole day filled with learning opportunities, starting in the morning at 8:30 and finishing at 17:30. This includes:
- Thought-provoking talks and keynotes
- Hands-on workshops across a range of programming topics
- Plenty of informal discussions and chances for you to connect with people involved in Code Club and CoderDojo
Join us to learn from others running clubs in diverse contexts, develop your digital making skills, and share your own insights. Tickets are limited. Book early to avoid disappointment.
