Pobail le Cheile runs a weekly CoderDojo group, providing a free, safe and fun environment for young people to learn the basics of programming, allowing them to form an understanding of the technology which shapes the world in which we live.
Activities include digital art, web development, game creation and programming simple applications such as quizzes, using a variety of age- and ability-appropriate technologies. Attendees are encouraged to come up with their own project ideas, and mentors will do their best to help them bring these ideas to fruition.
As well as developing new skills, the Dojo provides a valuable social space for young people to interact with like-minded peers, and generally hang out. We have in the past gone on field trips, and occasionally run competitive gaming events and pizza evenings.
Now in its fifth year, CoderDojo Falcarragh is open to anyone between the ages of 7 and 17.
