KEARNEY – Computer programming club Kearney Area Coder Dojos will meet three times this fall, allowing youth to learn about coding, building websites, creating apps or games, and exploring technology.

The events include separate sessions at University of Nebraska at Kearney and are hosted by UNK’s Computer Science and Information Technology Department.

CoderDojos are from 6 to 8 p.m. at UNK’s Otto Olsen Building room 110 on Sept. 18, Oct. 16 and Nov. 20.

Students may attend one, two or all sessions. There is no cost to attend. The CoderDojo experience is individualized for each student.

CoderDojos are unstructured, open-source coding clubs for students ages 8-17. Participants are introduced to computer programming. Parents are welcome to stay.

CSIT faculty and students at UNK, along with area IT professionals, will assist as mentors.

Students may bring their own devices to use. UNK also will have computers available.
