A lot to be thankful for at Idealab

Our November session took us back to one of our favorite and most supportive teams at Idealab. As always the wonderful team at Idealab treated us to a perfect weekend for our little ninjas to get some more coding under their belts before Thanksgiving tummies fill them up!

It’s been partners such as Idealab who’ve really made it possible for CoderDojo LA to continue bringing kids and parents together to learn about programming. So in honor of Thanksgiving, we want to say an extra thanks to not only Idealab but all those who allow us to keep coding!


Every month parents patiently wait for the announcement of our next session and fill the RSVP lists in record time! It’s these parents who tirelessly shuttle their little ninjas to our different host partners around LA…

who jump in to lend a hand and who provide unending support of their coder’s efforts and progress.

Sometimes it’s even the GRANDPARENTS who join the coding fun!

So to all our parents AND grandparents, we thank you!


What good would a nonprofit be without its volunteers? We for one know we wouldn’t be much without these guys! CoderDojo LA has been truly lucky to find a fun, energetic group of volunteers from our tireless leaders Una and Shara, to those who have been with us for the last year and those just joining. 2013 has been an exciting year for us with November proving to be no different as a new advanced game was introduced by Kyle Yamamoto and volunteer Jennifer Ellis took on leading her first ever session for the beginners! We can’t wait for what’s in store for 2014!


Last but definitely not least, we want to thank all of our CoderDojo LA Ninjas! Whether a veteran or IdeaLab was their first time, without these guys and gals CoderDojo LA wouldn’t even have a purpose. It’s by far the best part of every dojo to see these energetic (sometimes bouncing) ninjas come rushing through the doors to snag their seats. Their creativity and bravery in taking risks, openness to trying new things, and the way they reach out to help other ninjas never cease to amaze us. It’s true that they’ve really become the biggest teachers in this whole process and we cannot thank them enough for believing in us and coming back each month for a new round of coding!

Miss out on our session with Idealab? Don’t worry! No need to feel like a…

Just access all the coder’s shared projects in the CoderDojoLA Studio to join the fun!
