Coding Club

Code is a set of instructions (or rules) that computers can understand; it might be helpful to think of code as a recipe. People write code, code powers computers and computers power many everyday objects like phones, watches, microwaves and cars.  Learning coding empowers students to do many things they wouldn’t otherwise be able to do. These things include hand-crafting their own websites, becoming a career coder or even starting a technology business. Most importantly, they’ll be able to understand the technology shaping your world. The club uses an online program called code.org to understand how coding works and learn to program robots to perform certain functions. This club is for 4th and 5th grade students.
