Are you a 4th or 5th Grader Interested in Coding and Robotics?

If you are available from 8:00 to 8:30 am on Day 5, then I would love to see you in the library for some bonus learning.

We will be using Scratch (jr), Swift Playgrounds, Kodable, Dash and Dot, and more.

Remember, Day 5 changes after days off from school such as holidays, weather issues and other non school days.

If interested, please fill out the form below. I would like them back by Fri, Oct. 12 so I can connect with participants and families before officially starting.

Thank You!
