BULGARIA: DOJOGIRLS 2022
In a series of virtual workshops, the little ladies learn about technology and programming, and turn their ideas into exciting projects. We introduce them to grown-up girls who are already successful professionals in the so-called “male territory” of technology.
A Dojo is a free, volunteer-led, community-based computer club for young people. Anyone aged 7 to 17 can visit a Dojo and learn to code, build a website, or create an app or game. Dojos are a space for kids and teens to explore technology in an informal, creative, safe and social environment. The CoderDojo movement is formed of a global network of Dojos and the community of volunteers and children that make them happen.
CoderDojo Bulgaria started in 2015 and it’s the regional body of the CoderDojo movement in the country. It’s a privately sponsored initiative providing free tech education for kids aged 7-17.
DojoGirls is an initiative that is held annually. The event’s main objectives are to excite girls’ curiosity about technology, provoke girls’ interest in STEM, change gender stereotypes and present female role models.
The mentors are IT specialists and tech amateurs who generously volunteer their time and knowledge.
