On Martin Luther King’s Day of Service 2017, we hosted our 2nd Annual “Making An Impact Through Service” event. The event gathered middle & high school students to discuss the issues and challenges they found most important to our community. Those who attended participated in engaging dialogue, discussed possible solutions to local issues and created project impact ideas for follow-on activities.

Our coding clubs offer instruction in computer science concepts at varying experience levels for all students in grades 6-12. We have gender specific clubs for girls and coed clubs which are inclusive of everyone. Each club has presentations, speakers and a culminating impact project to enrich the coding experience. Learn more about our clubs & activities here.
