Coderdojo

Free STEM Event or Kids!

CoderDojo is a free program for kids from kindergarten to 5th grade. It offers various stations with STEM activities. Children can freely explore any station that catches their interest. Mentors are available at each station to help them get started, allowing students to learn and explore on their own.

Participants are welcome to drop in at any time during the event. We encourage registration so our team can prepare accordingly.

Always Hands-on Stations:

  • Hour of Code: Engage in self-guided activities tailored to your coding comfort level. Activities include Scratch Block Programming, which allows you to easily build stories and games using “blocks” of code. You can also play Code Combat, an innovative live coding strategy game for beginners. Learn Python or JavaScript as you defeat ogres, solve mazes, and level up.
  • Snap Circuits: Learn basic engineering, electronics, and circuitry concepts using Snap Circuits! Snap Circuits use easy-to-connect components to assemble electronic circuits on a simple “rows-and-columns” base grid that you build functions like the printed circuit boards in most electronic products!
  • Microscopes: Kids can explore biology up close with a self-guided microscope with over 200 slides.
  • Drones: Kids can maneuver drones (with adult supervision) around obstacle courses.
