Maynooth University Department of Computer Science will restart CoderDojo sessions which have been on pause since 2020.

This is a free, weekly event for students aged 8-16. For any students 12 or under, a parent or guardian will need to remain in attendance for the session. For those 13 or older, parent can choose to remain or not.

For beginners, we will run Scratch sessions every week with material that the kids can follow along with. For more experienced kids, we will have a rotating topic every 1-2 weeks. The first couple of weeks will look at Java programming. You can attend every week, but it's not a problem missing out on any of the sessions.

If you are interested, please fill out the sign-up form:   We are limited to 90 places and the form will close once that number is reached, at which point we will take waitlist interest.


We are running a 5-week series starting Tuesday 9th of April from 5pm - 7pm
