Concern Over the Registration Process

We have heard a number of you are interested in joining our first Coding Club, that is fantastic!!! There has been some concern over spots filling quickly and how we will handle registration time stamps should that occur.

The Blogger clock on the right of the screen shows the official blog time. Time stamps will be assigned at the moment you press "send".

To be fair to all who apply, applications received before 7:00 am EST will not be accepted if we reach our max of 25 students. If we do not reach our limit, this will not be an issue

If you still have questions, contact us via the Contact Form on the right.  Thank you for your interest in encouraging STEM learning in your children!

So, what's a coding club?!?

Anybody Can Learn
(the following is from code.org)

Students will use:

Code.org Code Studio is a fun, creative platform for learning basic coding and computer science! Using a blended learning model, your children are learning with a mix of online activities (on the computer) and “unplugged” classroom activities that use no computer at all.
This format helps nurture creativity, problem solving, collaboration, and logic through interactive, self-paced tutorials, featuring short video lectures and game-like puzzles.
Students will study topics such as:
·   How the Internet works
·   Basic computer programming
·   Logic, problem solving and creativity
·   Creating simple apps, animations, and “code art” 


Want to see what we are all about with a Frozen or Star Wars game?  Go to code.org and try it out!



Join us, registration opens December 1st!
