What is CoderDojo WA?

CoderDojo is an open source education movement, and a worldwide community of fun, free and social coding clubs (Dojos) for 7-17 year olds (Ninjas) which help them develop digital literacy and other 21st century skills.

CoderDojo WA is the Western Australian node of the international CoderDojo movement. CoderDojo WA is led and supported by the Fogarty Foundation, with help from our partners Woodside, Scitech and South 32.

Who runs and supports these Dojos?

CoderDojo clubs are run independently at a growing range of locations including universities, businesses, schools, community centres, libraries and more. These clubs are usually run by self-nominated Champions with the support of their employer or a host organisation. These Dojos look to gain support from volunteer Mentors from within or outside their organisation so that their Ninjas are supported during sessions. There is no age limit for Champions or Mentors! CoderDojo WA encourages youth leadership and mentorship.
