Coding Clubs

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.

Each meeting will include fun, interactive activities. North Dakota’s Gateway to Science incorporates the Girls Who Code curriculum for grades 3-8 coding clubs.
