Girls Who Code Grades 3-5
Apr 29 @ 4:00 pm – 4:45 pm

Each meeting we will talk about computers and coding and will include fun interactive activities. A typical meeting starts with girls reading and listening together from a part of the book. Then, they discuss question that relate to both the book and important concepts, like bravery, resilience, computational thinking and sisterhood. The Club will then take on a creative challenge that relates to the chapter they read – either unplugged or online. Activities will be done both offline with paper and markers and online using programs like Scratch.
