Manchester CoderDojo is a monthly youth club to code and make things with computers.

Are you under eighteen? Do you know about programming or are keen to learn and give it a go? If so, CoderDojo might be for you.

Manchester Coderdojo returns to The Sharp Project with a BBC Digital Cities edition with special activities across coding, making and creating.

Manchester CoderDojo is a volunteer-led community group for young people to code and make things.

Hosted by SharpFutures at The Sharp Project, this special BBC Digital Cities edition of Manchester Coderdojo will feature a wide range of coding activities for young people aged 8 and upwards. Part of the global CoderDojo network, Manchester Coderdojo is a unique opportunity for young people to develop their coding skills with programmes such as ScratchPython, and Roblox as well as kit like Sonic PiLittle Bits, and BBC Microbits, led by the Dojo volunteers and mentors. Learn how to code, or if you already can, improve your skills. Build cool stuff, from games to websites to animations to apps. Meet people like you who are interested in the same sort of things.

Important
If you are 13 or under, then please make sure a parent or guardian is with you. If you’re 13 or over, then we will ask for details of an emergency contact person if they are not staying.
