After School Code Club

Gather with other area students to explore computer coding at your own pace on Thursday afternoons from 3:45-4:45 at DCL.  Led by Grinnell College Computer Science students, the format will be relaxed and inviting, designed to provide encouragement and exploration of coding for all levels.  Students are encouraged to bring their school laptops if possible, but there are coding programs that can be done on the library computers as well.  Snacks will be provided.
