LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Lafayette's Imagination Station is embracing a program that brings the world of coding to kids.

CoderDojos are designed for people aged 7-17 to help teach them how to develop websites, apps, games and more.

Jazmin Berlanga Medina, the Director of Educational Programs at Imagination Station, is excited about this opportunity for kids. “CoderDojo Imagine is the result of a year-long effort to start a computer club at Imagination Station. We're happy to reach this milestone, but more importantly, we are excited about creating free learning opportunities for local kids.”

Coderdojo Imagine will meet the third Friday of every month, starting on Jan. 19. The classes run from 5 to 7 p.m.

The program is free and all electronics needed for the class will be provided.

Classes will be taught by volunteers from all over the Greater Lafayette area.

CoderDojo Imagine is sponsored by Greater Lafayette Commerce, the Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette, Lafayette Daybreak Rotary Club, and United Way.
