School Assemblies

Coder Kids Club started off as a coding program for kids, and that’s where we excel for assemblies. We can get kids excited about learning how to code!

Cost

  • $650 for 1 x 45-minute program
  • $850 for 2 x 45-minute programs (back-to-back)

We can accommodate 250-300 kids in each program.

Travel to locations within 15 miles of our office in Crofton, MD is included in the prices above. We charge a travel fee of $50-100 for travel beyond that, with a maximum distance of 60 miles for a one-day trip.

Equipment & Setup

We take all of the equipment to you for our assemblies, including a laptop, portable PA system, projector, and screen. If you would rather we use your equipment for some reason, we can probably do that, but will also bring ours as backup, in case there are any incompatibilities.

Upon arrival at your location, we will need one hour to set everything up, so please make sure the space is empty, clean, and ready for us to get started. We will let you know if there are any other equipment or setup requirements for your selected program.

Programs

We currently have two assembly programs, both of which are perfect for getting kids excited about coding, and would be a great kick-off for your school’s Hour of Code festivities:

  • Adventures in Code: Robot Dance School
  • Adventures in Code: A-maze-ing Programmers

Adventures in Code: Robot Dance School

What is coding? How smart are computers? What happens if you tell a robot to do something it can’t do? The answers to all of these questions, and more, will be explored during our Adventures in Code: Robot Dance School assembly. This is a fun, interactive, and very active assembly, with silly videos, dancing teachers (maybe? please?), and a whole army of robots. An engaging educator will teach kids some basic programming concepts, including events, commands, and error handling through our “Robot Dance Language” (RDL).

This assembly requires plenty of floor space! Kids should sit on the floor, but have space to move around.

Adventures in Code: A-maze-ing Programmers

In this assembly, the kids get to tell the teachers what to do! We start this assembly off by talking about basic programming concepts, and showing some fun examples of code in action. Then we’ll teach everyone some basic commands. Our intrepid coders will then use the programming concepts they have learned to direct a blindfolded teacher through a dangerous maze, both on the computer and in the real world. We haven’t lost any teachers in the maze, yet…

This assembly requires plenty of floor space, for both the maze (at least 10×10) and kids! We can arrange the maze to fit in just about any space, but the larger the space, the more drama (and fun) we can create.
