The East Greenbush elementary schools recently started a fun and exciting Computer Coding Club! This club introduces students to the basics of computer coding.
Currently, the club is for students in grades 3-5 who are interested in, or would like exposure to computer coding. Students are using multiple platforms and have the opportunity to begin coding using Ozobot Bit (https://ozobot.com/). Ozobot Bit is an ingeniously fun, impressively smart, and incredibly small robot that moves according to how it is coded by YOU! Participating students work collaboratively with their peers as they begin to learn how to code through the use of robots and computer programs. Coding helps young people to think creatively, work together, reason systematically, and solve problems. These are essential skills for 21st-century careers in the ever-expanding field of STEM. No prior coding experience is required.
The club meets in the library from 8-9am and runs two identical eight-week sessions. Students are assigned to one meeting day per week. They are dismissed from the library when the school day starts at 9:00am. Participants are accepted on a first come, first serve basis.
