Saturday 19th March, 2016
9:45am to 11:00am
Session Level: youth
We have 60 kids in our K-5 Coder’s Club at school! We meet once a week, after school, and have staff, parent, and industry volunteers come and assist our students in learning how to code. We are primarily using the curriculum from Code .org, and our students are exploring many other languages and platforms through a variety of sites, games, and apps. This is our 2nd year running a Coder’s Club, and we would love to share lessons we’ve learned, and struggles we’ve had in order to help other schools get a club started for their students. After a short presentation, we will bring 60 of our iPads to facilitate a play time for youth to explore the apps and Code .org curriculum our students use. We will conclude the session with a Q & A time for anyone aspiring to begin their own Coder’s Club at their school.
