Coder Club - Starts Thursday, March 28
Coder Club is an 8-week session put on by the professionals at The Coder School of West County. Dennis Farnsworth will be our returning instructor! He will teach students (in grades 2 to 6) about Scratch, a visual programming language for young coders. Blocks are used to create games, tell stories and make cool graphics! Not only do kids learn how to combine elements of video, music, photos, and their own artwork to make interactive projects but, more importantly, they understand the basic elements of logic. Logic is the syntax of a command, ‘if-then’ statements, loops etc. This conceptual foundation is key to their journey as they advance into more complex programming.
  • Thursday Class Dates: Every Thursday from March 28 to May 16 from 3:30 to 4:30 pm at TFS
  • Cost: $160 per student; open to students in grades 2 through 6.
