On Wednesday 17 October, the CoderDojo Foundation held the sixth annual EUDojo in the European Parliament in Brussels, coinciding with Europe Code Week, attended by MEPs from over 10 countries. CoderDojo is an Irish-founded initiative with clubs in over 100 countries worldwide.
Forty young coders travelled to the EU Parliament from Ireland, the United Kingdom, Italy, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Moldova, Romania, Belgium, Spain and Portugal to showcase their coding and technology skills, teaching MEPs how to write their first lines of code, and demonstrating projects they had already created.
Lucy Brennan presented her scratch project called ‘Piano Pal’. The project is about teaching the basics of learning and practicing to play the piano. Caragh Bolger presented her project on ‘How to make the world a better place’ which is about the little things that make the world better.
