Attend a Dojo

Thank you for your interest in CoderDojo! The coronavirus pandemic continues to impact all our lives, including how Dojos can run. See our resources and guidance on the creative ways Dojos are running.

Technology is rapidly changing the world we live in. Every day, new innovations are developed that further integrates technology into our everyday lives. We don’t know what the world will look like in 10 years, but we know that world will be powered by code!


What is my child going to learn?

CoderDojo is not curriculum based, so every Dojo covers different topics. Often young people will start with Scratch, a visual programming tool, or by building their own website.

How do you register for a Dojo?

Each Dojo makes its own rules around registration and attendance. Search our global map and contact the Dojo directly if there are no events listed on their Dojo page.

What does my child need to bring?

In most Dojos you will need to bring a laptop. If you don’t have one check with the Dojo as some Dojos have spare laptops to lend. Don’t forget curiosity and a positive attitude too!

There’s no Dojo near me. Is my child out of luck?

No! Every Dojo around was started by somebody with a passion for the idea. You’re totally capable, no matter your tech skills, of starting your own Dojo. Let us help you get started!

Can parents help?

Yes, you can absolutely help! If you have technical skills you can mentor at the Dojo. If not, you can help out with registrations, check-in, and promoting the Dojo both online and offline.
