Undergraduate Opportunities

  • CoderDojo Volunteer and Community Outreach Opportunity

    • CoderDojo MHK is a great opportunity for students to get involved mentoring youth in the Manhattan and Geary County communities. The group is ran and founded by Kansas State Computer Science students. In the sessions, elementary and middle school students will work closely with technical mentors to develop deeper programming skills. Demand for mentors is high due to great attendance (about 25 youth per session). As a computer science student at Kansas State, you are invited to apply to become a mentor for CoderDojo and help teach programming to the next generation of leaders in technology. It is a great way to improve your teaching skills and professionally develop. To apply to be a mentor for Coderdojo, please click here.
