The Coding Crew Homeschool Club is a coding club for homeschool students to learn and hone 21st century skills while having fun in a social setting. It is loosely modeled after a CoderDojo.

In a club format, students will be coached as they work on projects that encourage initiative, creativity, problem-solving and collaboration. Projects will involve coding as well as design and making/tinkering. Example projects include, but are not limited to:

  • Coding LEGO Mindstorms robots to complete HydroDynamics missions
  • Decomposing, designing and coding a PacMan- or Battleship-type game
  • Brainstorming, designing and creating interactive team-based games
  • Researching, prototyping and coding interactive historical landscapes

The Coding Crew Homeschool Club is coached by YouthCode.gurus, all whom have received favorable background checks by the YouthCode program. Coding Crew meets at the Eastview Community Center which graciously provides space for the club.

Requirements:

  • Youth age 10 or above
  • Previously completed one YouthCode Scratch coding class
There is no cost for students to participate. Students will be able to showcase their work at an open house for family and friends to be scheduled for sometime in May. Contact Tim for more information about Coding Crew or to sign up your student.

YouthCode is a program of Impacting The Next Generation Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
