The CoderDojo classes have become so popular that there is now a Rebecca CoderDojo for girls only, ages 8-16. Rebecca CoderDojo is an independent chapter and its events are held at the Minneapolis Community & Technical College on Hennepin Avenue. The goal is to provide a learning environment for girls to explore coding and become innovators of technology.
