    You’re invited to join the Girls Who Code* movement! Girls Who Code Clubs are spaces where students can join a group of supportive peers and use computer science to change the world. Our 3rd-5th Grade Club will learn how to code by completing fun and simple online coding tutorials and building community through interactive club activities.

    The Berlin-Peck Memorial Library Girls Who Code Club is completely free to join! Attendance is very important, as the skills we learn each week build upon each other, so please be sure you can commit to attending at least eight of the ten Club meetings before registering. You do NOT need to be a Berlin resident to participate!

    Our Club will meet roughly every other week from 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM. Meeting dates are: 10/18; 11/1; 11/15; 11/29; 12/13; 1/3; 1/17; 1/31; 2/14; and 2/28. Registration is required; registering once will enroll you in all 10 sessions.
