CoderDojo is a global movement of free, volunteer-led, community based programming clubs for young people. We are the Melbourne chapter of this amazing initiative!

At CoderDojo Melbourne, young people aged between 7 and 17, learn how to code, develop websites, apps, programs, games and explore technology in an informal, safe, and creative environment. In addition to learning to code, attendees meet like minded people and are exposed to the possibilities of technology. There is a focus on community, peer learning, youth mentoring and self led learning, with an emphasis on showing how coding is a force for change in the world.

We don’t follow a strict syllabus. Instead, we let the kids choose what they want to work on, and the mentors guide and help them along their journey of discovery into the world of technology!

Some of rad things we do at CoderDojo Melbourne include:

  • Scratch

  • RaspberryPi
  • HTML & CSS (websites)
