• Welcome to CoderDojo NOVA

Big things are in store for CoderDojo NOVA which has always been supported by the 501(C)3 non-profit Startfield. The Dojo will become one of the pillars of Startfield Academy whose mission is to offer youth and teenagers access to high-demand tech skills & virtual mentoring.

CoderDojo NOVA (“CoderNova”) is part of the free, open, and non-profit CoderDojo movement to teach kids 7-17 (along with their parents) how to code. Our coding sessions will work proactively to eliminate gender and socioeconomic barriers to computer science by providing a no-cost (free!) way for young people to experience programming early—and have fun doing it!   Most sessions require no prior knowledge!

This brief video deomonstrates the ethos or the spirit of CoderDojo.

CoderDojoNova held its third annual Hour of Code Event on December 10, 2016 at the Silverline Center (7900 Westpark Drive, Tysons Corner, VA 22102).  The event featured demonstrations of a number of interesting technologies like 3D printing, Little Bits circuit kits, mBot robots and drone simulators as well as the presentation of the entrants of the regional coding competition #CoolCodeAwards.  We would like to thank our sponsors: Neustar and Octo Consulting for their commitment and support.
