CoderDojo: NewBoCo K–12 Education

NewBoCo K–12 Education

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.

New this Week:


Starlabs is a portable observatory, with mentor Heidi Haney from Curiosity Path you’ll child will get an exploratory look at astrology.

The StarLab portable planetarium inflated in the CoderDojo space.Mississippi River Mueseum: 

We are excited to welcome the Mississippi River Museum for a fun interactive vertical wind tunnel that your child will have a blast finding objects to see if they float or sink.Using that knowledge, they can then design something out of paper to see if it floats or sinks in the tunnel.


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. 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!
