Looking for an opportunity to learn the basics of coding and computer science from home for your 3rd through 5th grade student? Check out Girls Who Code At Home with the West Wyandotte Library! Beginning August 20, 2020 at 4:00 pm, girls in 3rd through 5th grades are invited to join in the virtual fun every other Thursday evening with Ms. Jacqueline to learn the foundations of computer science and coding together.

Girls Who Code Club is a community of 3rd through 5th grade girls who design, code, read, and explore the world of computer science together. Each meeting, taking place every other Thursday, features activities, discussions, and creative challenges based on the best-selling “Girls Who Code” books. GWC Club is designed to expose girls to bravery, resilience, and computational thinking through fun activities, social opportunities, inspiring stories of women in technology, and creative challenges. Ms. Jacqueline teaches club lessons from the Girls Who Code curriculum. Click here to learn more about Girls Who Code.

This fall, our 3rd-5th grade club will take place online via password-protected Zoom meetings. Some activities may require craft materials that will be provided by the library through curbside pickup. Club members must have an email address (a parent’s is acceptable) and access to a device that will allow them to utilize Zoom videoconferencing software, the Girls Who Code HQ website, and Scratch.mit.edu. Visit Scratch to try out the program we’ll be using to learn coding this fall!
