CoderDojo

Welcome to CoderDojo at the Science Museum—a free coding session for young people interested in programming.

Each session will consist of one hour of programming, during which you can try coding for the first time, take part in our specially designed coding activities to develop your skills, or just work on your own project. This is followed by a short show-and-tell session where you can share your projects with the rest of the group, using our massive 80-inch TV.

You choose what you want to create, go at your own pace and decide how you like to work—on your own or teamed up. From total beginners to programming masters, everyone is welcome, and our expert Mentors will be available to lend a hand if you run into trouble.

These sessions are designed as a stand-alone experience so keep an eye on what we have planned for the future as activities and content may change.

Next CoderDojo

Saturday 10 August 2019

Our regular Dojo continues in a new location—join us in the Wonderlab Schools Area to create projects in Scratch, Python, HTML and more.

Design Club: Design a helpful mobile app
Through a design thinking process, young people will design a mobile app for a target user of their choice.

Young designers will work through five phases: frame a design challenge, empathise with their target user, generate ideas, prototype a solution, and then test that solution for real-world feedback. (Designers will need access to parents' mobile phones for the prototyping phase).

Please bring a fully charged laptop and a charger.
