Computing skills are the most sought-after in the US job market, with demand growing 3X the national average. Computing is used all around us and in virtually every field. It is foundational knowledge that all students need, but is often overlooked.  We need to improve access for all students—and that’s where The Coding Club @ Fredricksen Library can help. Coding Club will help develop important digital literacy skills all while having fun. This informational meeting will provide an overview of the club structure and goals. The club will be broken down into two sessions, with Session 1 meeting weekly for 10 weeks beginning January 7 at 4:30 pm. For ages 12 -18.  Register starting December 1.

Have any questions or are interested in becoming a volunteer for this program? Email the Teen Programmer/STEM Coordinator at cpease@ccpa.net. Sponsored by The Anne M. and Phillip H. Glatfelter, III Family Foundation
