We believe that everyone should have a chance to create with technology, not just consume it.

It's a family affair: two sisters and their dad explore coding together!

About Us

Northfield CoderDojo is a local chapter of a global network of similar groups. We all have one mission: to offer young people a free, open-ended environment to learn to code. We're one of seven chapters in Minnesota, more than 100 in the United States, and 1200 worldwide.


Anyone between the ages of 6 and 17 is welcome to come code with us! Whether you're not sure what programming is, have made a million dollars in sales of your own app, or anywhere in between, we'd love to have you. Bring your own computer or other equipment, or use ours - it's all good.


If you've got programming know-how (or are willing to learn!), we'd love to have you join us as a volunteer. You get to sign up by event, so it's as big a commitment as your schedule permits!
