About RVA Coder Dojo

RVA Coder Dojo is a free, volunteer led, open source resource to help kids, ages 5-17, understand how to become digital producers.

Most children are outstanding digital consumers. Very few understand how the technology they consume is created. Our goal is to expose students to coding and inspire them by helping them learn more about how code makes up their digital world.

Computer science develops students’ computational and critical thinking skills and shows them how to create, not simply use, new technologies. This fundamental knowledge is needed to prepare students for the 21st century, regardless of their ultimate field of study or occupation.

We embrace the philosophy of "failing forward". We believe that through both success and failure, we create the foundations for knowledge.
