Matheson’s CoderDojo is a volunteer programming club for young people with a passion for and interest in the world of coding. CoderDojo, established in Ireland in 2011 by James Whelton and Bill Liao, is a global network of coding clubs for young people (aged 7 to 17) where they learn how to code, develop programmes, build websites, games and apps, and explore technology. Our collaboration with CoderDojo is one of a number of initiatives borne out of Smart@Matheson.
This year Matheson launched the first CoderDojo summer camp designed for young innovators between the ages of 7 and 13 with a passion for and interest in coding. The camp, held at Matheson HQ on Sir John Rogerson’s Quay, provided coding lessons during which the young participants were given the opportunity to create apps, games and websites. The children also received interactive presentations and workshops from Daqri, ConsenSys and Junior Einstein
