Gallery: Creating an app is child’s play at city’s free coding club
Cambridge children have been learning to create apps for their phones and build their own websites at free coding clubs.
The clubs are run by CoderDojo, a global open-source, volunteer-led movement that organises the not-for-profit dojos for young people aged 7-17.
Sessions are held one Saturday a month at the Bradfield Centre on the Cambridge Science Park – and this month’s session took place last Saturday (October 26).
