Coding Club

Coding Club

We are excited to announce that SMA Prep will again host an after-school coding club! This coding program/curriculum is designed to provide a safe and supportive environment to learn coding and for students to begin seeing themselves as computer scientists. It is open to ALL SMA Prep students at all levels of computer science experience. .

WHAT IS THIS CODING PROGRAM?

Coding club is a group of supportive peers and role models who are excited to use Computer Science to change the world. When you join, you will learn from fun and simple online coding tutorials, build community through interactive activities and learn about inspiring role models. You then work in teams to design and build projects that solve real-world problems you care about through code!

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

Our grades 6-8 program encourages students to impact their community in a positive way through coding. In order to build the skills needed to make an impact, participants will learn how to code using online tutorials and activities that help them build animations, games, apps, and other creative ideas! Tutorials are available in Scratch, Python, HTML/CSS, JavaScript, and in a block-based app development language called Thunkable. Students will also have an opportunity to learn robotics as their skills develop.

Returning club members will also have an additional meeting day open to them on Tuesdays. Space is limited, so register early!

Dates & Times for 2022-23 coming soon!
