Coding, poetry clubs meeting at SPL


Girls Who Code and Poetry clubs will meet this month at Swanton Public Library.

Girls (and boys) in grades 3-5 are invited to attend meetings of Girls Who Code, a free after-school club. Attendees will learn the beginning steps of building code by reading and discussing the Girls Who Code book and by completing thematically-related challenges.

There will be activities for kids with zero to some computer science experience, so everyone is welcome.

The next meetings for grades 3-5 is from 1-2 p.m. on Saturdays, May 18 and 25.

Girls (and boys) in grades 6-12 are also invited to attend meetings of Girls Who Code for their age group. The next meeting for grades 6-12 are from 4-5 p.m. on Thursdays, May 23.

Attendees will build character and coding skills as they learn, plan, build, and celebrate together to create a project they care about. We will have activities for kids with zero computer science experience all the way up to activities that introduce college-level concepts, so everyone is welcome.
