"Around Kitsap," a television show from Bremerton Kitsap Access Television, recently featured West Sound CoderDojo, a program that offers free programming classes for kids age 8 to 18, hosted by the Western Washington University Center in Olympic College, Poulsbo.

The CoderDojo movement is a global movement of free, volunteer-led, community based programming clubs for young people. Students learn how to code, develop websites, apps, programs, games and explore technology in an informal and creative environment. In addition to learning to code attendees meet like-minded people and are exposed to the possibilities of technology. There is a focus on community, peer learning, youth mentoring and self-led learning, with an emphasis on showing how coding is a force for change in the world.

Experience levels range from beginner to advanced and participation is always free.
