New Oxford Library and Conewago Valley Intermediate School math and science teacher Erinne Lynch are partnering to offer a Girls Who Code Club to local students in grades 3-6. This weekly club will meet on Tuesdays beginning January 14th, 2020 at 4:30pm.
Girls Who Code Clubs are a community of girls who actively design, code, read and explore together. Featuring activities, characters, and vocabulary drawn from the best-selling Girls Who Code books, Clubs expose girls to bravery, resilience, and computational thinking at the exact moment when research indicates that their interest is high.
Each meeting will include fun, interactive activities that are unique to Girls Who Code. A typical meeting starts with girls reading together from a part of the book. Then, they discuss questions that relate to both the book and important concepts, like bravery and sisterhood. The Club will then take on a creative challenge that relates to the chapter they read - either unplugged or online.
This program is free. Students who arrive prior to the start of the meeting will be encouraged to work on homework and enjoy snacks with fellow participants.
Begin registration at https://adamslibrary.org/events/girls-who-code-coding-colonials then follow the instructions in the confirmation email to complete the child’s enrollment.
