Information about the Girls Who Code club...
WHAT IS THE PROGRAM?
Girls Who Code 3rd-5th Grade Clubs are a community of girls who actively design, code, read and explore together. Featuring activities, characters, and vocabulary drawn from the best-selling Girls Who Code books, 3rd-5th Grade Clubs expose girls to bravery, resilience, and computational thinking at the exact moment when research indicates that their interest is high.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A CLUB MEETING?
Each meeting will include fun, interactive activities that are unique to Girls Who Code. A typical meeting starts with girls reading together from a part of the book. Then, they discuss questions that relate to both the book and important concepts, like bravery and sisterhood. The Club will then take on a creative challenge that relates to the chapter they read - either unplugged or online.
