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!

We’re currently accepting registrations: simply fill out this form to register to attend. It’s completely free!

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

Tell your friends!

Coding and making (rather than playing) games

CoderDojo is a place to get together and code, so we think that everyone will get more out of the Dojo is they’re actually coding and not just playing games – but we can help you to create your own!

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.
