Computer Science for Grades 3-5 and 6-8

Throughout the Clubs, members will:

  • Learn to see themselves as computer scientists.
  • Gain exposure to project management and problem-solving techniques.
  • Learn in a safe and supportive environment of peers and role models.
  • Learn the foundational computer science concepts that form the basis for all programming languages.

There is no cost to participate in NDGTS Coding Club, but registration is required. 

Grades 3-5

Complete unplugged or plugged challenges in Scratch after reading each chapter in the Girls Who Code non-fiction book, Learn to Code and Change the World, or fiction book, the Friendship Code.

NDGTS Coding Club for grades 3-5 meets Thursdays from 4:00 to 5:15 pm at Gateway to Science.

Grades 6-8

Learn a variety of programming languages, including Scratch, Swift, Python, and JavaScript. Girls Who Code Projects offer a range of difficulties for beginner programmers who have little to no experience programming to more advanced learners who will engage in more advanced topics like data structures.
