What is a CoderDojo?
At a regular CoderDojo, young people can learn how to code, develop websites, build apps, games and more. It makes learning to code a fun and sociable experience.
No previous coding experience is necessary.
On the day you can bring along your own laptop. If you do not have your own laptop please still come along as there are computers you can use at the college.
Age group? This is a club for 7 - 17 years. Look for CoderDojo Moray on Eventbrite.
