Calling all Coders!

Do you love video games? Are you interested in learning how to code?

This Saturday, Oct. 10 Kaneko is hosting CoderDojo— a non-traditional learning environment for students ages 7 to 17. The event occurs monthly and is free and open to the public. It will take place from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at 1111 Jones St. in Omaha, Nebraska.

CoderDojo is part of a global movement of open source coding sessions led by volunteer mentors who are involved in education or the tech industry. In these programs kids learn how to creatively code at their own pace in a fun, relaxed environment.

“Our goal with the program is to create an interest in IT early, so participants have a strong interest in becoming a part of the IT field further down the road,” said Cheryl Steede, Talent Search Grant Manager, AIM Youth.

Participants of the event will have the opportunity to learn the basics of SCRATCH, Python and JavaScript, depending on their skill level.

Join the 200+ kids from the Nebraska/ Iowa region who have participated in the program so far. Register here and don’t forget to share the event with your friends and family!

Registration closes this Friday, October 9.

*Participants ages 12 and under are required to have a parent stay with them during the session.
