What young people can create at a Dojo

See what Ninjas make at a Dojo, for example with the help of CoderDojo Foundation resources.

In Dojo sessions, Ninjas work with the support of mentors (volunteers who facilitate learning at Dojos) to produce something with code. This can be a project from the CoderDojo resources site, an online coding tutorial, or something the Ninjas have imagined and now want to make real.

Ninjas can work in groups or alone, depending on the nature of their project and their preferences.

CoderDojo projects

The CoderDojo community and the CoderDojo Foundation team have created a collection of educational projects, which you can find at These are totally free and exist to make it easier for you to run your Dojo! We’ll talk more about them in Weeks 2 and 3, but here’s a quick one you can try out right now to build a simple web page!

What do you want to make with your Ninjas?

In the discussion below, tell us what you’re hoping to create with the Ninjas at your Dojo. Have a look through the comments to get ideas from other champions too! We’ll read them all, pick our favourite idea, and (if you’re happy to let us!) turn it into a free project tutorial for the CoderDojo resources website!
