Girls Who Code is an international organization that focuses on coding and empowerment for girls and non-binary students The club is for 3rd-5th grade students (as designed by GWC). This is a beginner level program, but if your child has coding experience, they are still welcome to join as this isn't just a coding club! GWC is a fun and safe environment for the students to partake in computer science AND sisterhood activities. Girls Who Code have been since 2012 and has inspired bright futures of young girls around the world. Students who participate are members of the GWC community and can even benefit down the road with college experiences, exclusive job opportunities, and the alumni association. Looking through the materials and curriculum has been exciting as its not your typical coding club. Can't wait to get started! 

Meetings will be held once a week from the week of March 25th through June 10th 2021 (with the exception of April 22 and May 27 due to school holidays). This makes 10 sessions for the club to meet. Time is tentatively scheduled for 4:30pm on those days for one hour, although once we have a group, I'm open to discussing the meeting time. Meetings will be virtual for now, we'll see how social distancing plays out as time goes by. Currenlty there are 10 spots being offered.  While Pomfret residents will recieve first priority, this is open to surrounding towns as well. 

 

Additionally, I'm looking for one more student assistant, this would preferably be a girl/non-binary student age 13-17 with some coding experience.

Hour of Code is a single session coding program open to all children between the ages of 9-13.  Some coding experience is needed, as this is a secondary level course. Our theme of the day will be Figurative Language, we'll be doing word play! And how appropriate that we are meeting on May the Fourth (Star Wars Day).  There are a couple of projects in this session, which may mean the class takes a little longer than an hour. 

This session will be held on Tuesday May 4th at 4pm by Google Meet. You will recieve a meeting link after registration. You will need a laptop or desktop computer at home to participate, tablets/iPads are not yet compatible. Please let us know if you have any concerns regarding this.
