CoderDojo is a global movement of volunteers, set up to encourage kids and young people to become creators rather then just users of computers. The one rule at CoderDojo is to ‘be cool’. Find out more about CoderDojo.

CoderDojo Brighton is a free coding club for young people that takes place every other Saturday at the Creativity Suite at the University of Brighton Huxley Building. How to find us.

6-16 year-old girls and boys – get involved!

Are you interested in programming? Whether you’re a beginner or a competent programmer already, everyone is welcome at CoderDojo.

If you’re a girl, don’t believe the stereotypes that say programming is only for boys – come along and join the other girls who already come to CoderDojo Brighton!

If you like playing games, why not come in and try to make your own?

Simply fill out this form to register to attend. It’s completely free!

Once registered you will be added to the mailing list and will receive a mail on the Thursday or Friday before the next session. This will confirm the date of the session listed on the website and whether there are any special projects being hosted by our mentors.

If you are new please look at the resources page to see what sorts of things you may be interested in.

Remember everyone has the freedom to work on projects that interest them most at their own pace, and our mentors are there to help you decided what you want to do and guide you along the way.

If you have never programmed you should create a Scratch account before you attend.

If you would like to try Python then you can download it here.

Remember to bring a laptop with you and a parent if you are under 13.

Tell your friends!

Mentors – get involved

We’re always looking for enthusiastic mentors who are happy to share their skills and knowledge of programming with young people. If this sounds like you, please join us as a mentor.

The only requirements are that you are available to attend some of our sessions on Saturdays from 10am to 1pm and that you have a good working knowledge of programming.

The University of Brighton has also offered to assist all mentors to register as a STEM Ambassador, which will provide you with a free DBS check (previously the CRB check) and extra security for working with young people.
