WHO WE ARE

LARGEST FREE CODING CLUB IN INDIANA

CoderDojoAnvil

CoderDojoAnvil is a volunteer organization which provides open access for exploring, developing and teaching web, game and app development skills to youth ages 7 to 17. We service the West Lafayette and Lafayette community!

We are one of the largest dojos in America, founded by sisters Farhat (Farah) and Doonyah Alucozai in 2015. Located on the campus of Purdue University, our Dojo has successfully served 200 families over the past year!

CoderDojo

CoderDojo is a global movement of free coding clubs for youth that began in Ireland. CoderDojo was founded by James Whelton and Bill Liao in 2012. There are now over 400 chapters in 40 countries around the globe.

Farah and Doonyah and their team are passionate about growing their program in the local community and using its success to reach further milestones. Established in 2015 by Doonyah and Farah Alucozai, CoderDojoAnvil was created to give back to the local community and to inspire others by promoting STEM education.

The sisters focus on coding and the encouragement of learning and development in a fun, friendly, and supportive environment. CoderDojoAnvil is revolutionizing mainstream views of coding and changing stereotypes by allowing children to start at such a young age. The organization aims to motivate students to work towards STEM degrees and to maintain their love and passion for code.

CoderDojoAnvil has been featured in the follwoing news networks:
