Engineering, Creativity, and Entrepreneurship for Kids!
CoderDojo is a free K–5 STEM program in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and managed by NewBoCo K–12 Education that encourages creativity, fosters entrepreneurship, and helps kids learn to code.
Each week, we assemble new “stations” where kids can experience different STEM activities and learn about subjects like physics, engineering, computer science, circuitry, automation, and much more—all while having fun and being creative! We encourage students to visit any stations that look fun and interesting! Mentors will get participants started at each station, then students can learn, explore, and do what kids do best—play—inside the activities. Curiosity and creativity are your best friends!
Hour of Code
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. What you build functions just like the printed circuit boards found in most electronic products!
Please reserve your spot so that we can provide adequate support for the stations. CoderDojo is a free community event, and we look forward to supporting you as you learn more about STEM!
Are you interested in helping out? We’re always open to volunteers. Afraid you don’t have the expertise? No worries, we’ll show you everything you need to know. Join us, help the kids out, and maybe you’ll learn something too!
