Join Us for an Hour (or more) of Code

Interested in learning how to code? 
If you have basic computer skills (such as typing and searching the internet) and if you are 11 or older, then 4-H welcomes you to come learn how to code. Adults and youth are both welcome! 

When is the code club?
December 12, 2014 from 2:00PM-4:30PM.

I'm interested. How do I get involved?

[If you are not able to join us in December, but would still like to join a code club, don't fret. We hope to start coding together at least once a month. We hope to see you there!]

Why code?
