Above all, Tralee CoderDoJo (TCDJ) is a fun and social space where young people, between 8 and 18, can go to explore technology together and get advice and support from skilled mentors. We focus on Problem Solving, Teamwork and Sharing as a means to achieve.

LogoTralee CoderDojo (TCDJ) Club Sessions take place at ITT North Campus Tralee on relevant Saturday’s from 1-3pm. We are located at the Business & Information Technology Building (S) at Rooms T105, T107, T109 & T110 (subject to availability). Directions & Map HERE.

Initially, at this Age group TCDJ Club-workshops are task-oriented and ‘belts’ and certificates will be awarded, in the form of colour-graded wrist-bands and certificates to recognise the level of skill achieved.

The format of the Intermediate Age 13-18 sessions is a more ‘club’ structure where participants work together on new belt tasks and projects but with minimal instruction. Project and Team work will follow as participant’s progress. Participants will be expected to attend the sessions, develop specific skills and demonstrate what you have learned through the completion of specific and group tasks. We are particularly focussed on getting Ninjas involved in working together as a Team, Problem Solving and Ninjas helping each other to achieve and progress to the next level. Experienced Ninjas at this age group will also have the opportunity to assist and present material involving more junior age groups.

This term the topics covered may include the following:

  • Scratch
  • Web development technologies (HTML & CSS)
  • Core-Programming, Unity, Arduino, Lego Robotics and much more…

An attendance Sheet is compiled and Participants are required to ‘Sign-In’ attendance on each TCDJ Saturday. A parent/guardian is required to ‘Sign-In’ on the attendance sheeet on Day 1, the first relevant TCDJ Saturday. Afterwards the Participants may Sign In the Attendance Sheets for themselves.  A Parent Roster is compiled and two parents will be required to attend at each session in a supervisory capacity – a weekly roster will be drawn up to manage this. Please ensure we also get Parent E Mail and contact details.
