To encourage students to explore the world of computer programming in a friendly, educational environment.
The inaugural program began in February 2017 with eight middle school girls at Current Blend in Huntingburg. They have learned the basic skills to code using Scratch and have created working programs of their own.
WE NEED YOUR HELP
We would like to expand Blended Coders to other locations in Dubois County so more students can participate in this fun and rewarding class. With the help of volunteers, we will be able to create Blended Coders groups throughout the county.
We need volunteers who can either:
· facilitate the meetings by presenting the lessons to the students
· or act as an assistant to the facilitator by helping with the basic needs of the students.
You would commit yourself to an eight-week session with meetings once a week. These sessions are after school from 3:30 to 5:00. Lessons and equipment will be available for you. You do not have to have extensive knowledge with computer programming, though even some experience is beneficial to the role of facilitator. Your class would consist of middle school girls. Class sizes will be small so that each student can get the help and encouragement she needs to be successful.
