Get Me Coding!

We run on the 1st Sunday of the month.

You can book your place through the CoderDojo Zen system. Before you do, please read this important information:

What to expect

Our CoderDojo is an informal event, with lots of different activities and areas.

There will be areas to help with Raspberry Pi, Python, Scratch and other stuff such as Microbits. Please let us know if you are new to coding and/or CoderDojo, so that we can make you especially welcome.

We have one rule. Be Cool.

Looking for something to try beforehand?

The CoderDojo Kata is very useful. We'd also recommend the CodeClub resources, and Raspberry Pi projects. Mozilla Webmaker is also great. The BBC have also some good Bitesize guides on computing. Finally, there are also some good resources on the Hour of Code website.

The seasonal Advent of Code might be of interest too.

Who?

Tameside CoderDojo is run entirely by volunteer mentors. Many of us are STEM Ambassadors or work in digital and tech businesses.

We're hugely grateful to the team at Active Medlock Sky High Adventure, who kindly host and welcome us.

Please make sure you say hello - the event is only as good as we all make it.

Can't make it anymore?

It's no problem - but we'd appreciate if you could let us know. That way, we can make spaces available to those who are waiting.

Big news! - The international conference for CoderDojo volunteers - DojoCon - is in Warrington in October.

After all the talks and workshops for the volunteers, we get to have some real fun - Megadojo!

On Sunday 15th October all the CoderDojos in the northwest will meet up in Warrington to hold a huge CoderDojo - and you're invited!

It will run from 10am until 1pm at Beamont Collegiate Academy, Warrington WA2 8PX

If you'd like to come along and join in this fun, free, and unlikely to happen again any time soon event, book your place below.

As we've got to coordinate with all the other Dojos, tickets end a little earlier this time - please book yours before the 8th of October
