ages 10-18 for 90 minutes every Wednesday this fall starting September 21. This club will be an opportunity for you to
learn through collaboration, experience and play and NOT through lecture. There will be weekly concepts and assignments
for you to work on, but the curriculum is really set by the participants. Do you want to program a Finch robot? Do you
want to work on a program in Scratch? Do
you want to work with Snap circuits or the Makey Makey board? It is up to YOU. No registration required at this time. Adults will be there to facilitate, but we
will be learning with you as well. Let’s
learn together!
