Dr Fiona Lawless, Head of Department of Computing Science and Mathematics said: “Our DojoMór aims to reach a wide audience and to give young people, who might not normally have exposure to coding, an opportunity to get involved. Although we would have loved to welcome you to Dojomor activities on campus at DkIT, we are delighted to be able to virtually co-host this event.”
CoderDojo is a worldwide movement of free, volunteer-led, community-based programming clubs for young people. Anyone aged 7 to 17 can visit a Dojo where they can learn to code, build a website, create an app or a game, and explore technology in an informal, creative, and social environment.
No prior coding experience is required to enjoy the day. Participants can select to attend as many workshops as they would like to attend. Places are limited so ensure to book early: http://www.DojoMor.ie
