KEARNEY – The CoderDojo movement is returning to the University of Nebraska at Kearney, where youth will learn about computer coding, building websites, creating apps and exploring technology.

Hosted by Kearney Area Coder Dojos, the events include separate sessions at UNK and include a partnership with 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 Feb. 18, March 18 and April 15.

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.
