Summer CoderDojo

August 17 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm

NewBoCo K–12 Education

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

Come join CoderDojo, a free K–5 STEM program in Cedar Rapids, Iowa!  Kids can explore different STEM activities like coding, engineering, and more, all while having fun and being creative. It’s the perfect place for young innovators to learn and play.

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!
  • 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.

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