Voigt’s first coding club is off and coding. With the increased focus on computer science and critical thinking, it’s important that our students get experience in these areas. The after school club is using Google’s CS First Music and Sound program which guides students gradually through levels to increase their programming skills within Scratch.
The students are loving learning how to program characters to move in various ways and to music. The skills learned during this club will be transferred to future programming with similar block styles.
The program is being offered to 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students and each program is 8 weeks long. Another program will begin in January with a new topic.The club is hosted by our Instructional Technology Specialist, Katie Leining.
