Coder Kids is a non-profit 501(c)3 registered organization, founded to help both girls and boys ages 5 and up who are interested in computer science and programming.

Our major focus is on learning and exploring computer science and programming through play; our Coder Kids create their own games. At the beginner level, we help kids make their own games using the Scratch 2.0  language from MIT.  At our more advanced level, for high school and middle school kids with programming experience, we are creating games using JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and more.  

Our goal is to encourage each Coder Kid to develop her or his interest in areas of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) through mentoring and hands-on learning with cool programming projects, interesting demos, and presentations by other kids. We especially want to encourage girls and kids from other underrepresented groups to get involved with learning programming and exploring STEM careers.

We hold our beginner workshops roughly once a month, and our advanced workshops once or twice a month. Workshops are free of charge.  The group is a great way to meet other kids with interest in technology. We are a volunteer organization; we need programming mentors, so if you have programming experience, please volunteer!

Note that all kids must be accompanied to the workshop by an adult over 18, or they won't be permitted to attend.

We're 531 Coder Kids
