Girls Who Code Grades 3-5
Apr 8 @ 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.

Classes are held in the
Studio Rhode Room
of the Woonsocket Harris Library

Online registration is required by Girls Who Code. Ask Ms. Chris for the information on how to sign up.

Parents are required to sign a permission form with instructions on how to register students online.

Students must be registered online with GWO to read passages from the book and do the online Scratch tutorials.

Sorry no walk-ins for this program.

When you are signing up you are signing up to attend all classes. Each class builds upon the next so attendance is important.
