Engineering, Creativity, and Entrepreneurship for Kids!

CoderDojo is a free program designed for kids from kindergarten to 5th grade. It features multiple stations equipped with STEM activities. Children can freely explore any station that looks fun and interesting to them. At each station, mentors are available to help get the kids started. From there, students can learn and explore the activities on their own. Curiosity and creativity are always encouraged.

Always-On Stations

 

  • Microscopes: Participants can explore the world on a microscopic level, with hundreds of slides to choose from, your child will love exploring while developing critical thinking and problem solving skills.
  • Bee-Bots: A delightful robot created especially for young children. With its bright colors, simple operation, and friendly appearance, it serves as an excellent tool for teaching skills such as counting, sequencing, directionality, problem-solving, and estimation, all while ensuring an enjoyable experience.
  • 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 Codecombat, 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!

This event is exclusive to Neighborhood Centers of Johnson County Summer Students.
