CoderDojo 2023-2024

May 18 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm

NewBoCo K–12 Education

Engineering, Creativity, and Entrepreneurship for k-5 Kids!


Exciting Partnerships!

This special CoderDojo event will welcome The RARE Group and Lemon Boss.

The RARE Group is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and conservation of birds of prey throughout Iowa. Participants will have the opportunity to meet and learn about a daytime (diurnal) and a nighttime (nocturnal) bird. Although this event is free, we’d appreciate any donations to support this exciting collaboration.

Lemon Boss is an annual program for Penny Savers and other kids ages 5-12. It’s designed to teach them how to start their own business, including securing a business loan, recording financial information, managing money, and developing customer service skills!

Always-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!

Please reserve your spot so we can provide adequate support for the stations!
