Code Club was a great success this fall with students from grades 3-8. Each week, we had approximately 30 students meet for Code Club and work on programs such as Microbits, Scratch, Arduino, and makey makey projects! It was a great time for learning, collaborating, coding and expanding their knowledge of computer science.

We hope to continue Code Club in the Spring! Stay tuned and keep coding!
