A MegaDojo is a large-scale technology fun day which brings together young people from several Dojos in the region as well as those who have no experience of CoderDojo. In particular, we are trying to reach kids who might not be in a position to regularly attend a Dojo. Our aim is to inspire young people to continue to explore Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).
We held our first MegaDojo in 2015 in Limerick Institute of Technology which was attended by 512 young people. We followed this up in 2016 with 1024 attendees in Limerick. This year to grow the event yet again we will span two locations, Limerick Institute of Technology & Maynooth University, enabling us to reach a wider audience.
However, we need your help to make MegaDojo a success. While we do have a requirement for some monetary support, we have a greater need for volunteers on the day, both admin and technical and are looking for businesses to come on board in this capacity. Please find below a Supporters Deck which offers more information on MegaDojo and we have a number of support packages available. This support could, for example, take the form of your company running one of our Coding Workshops (HTML/Python/RaspberryPi/Java by “Your Company”) or exhibiting your technology in a fun way to the attendees.
