Coding for Kids Classes at NCC

Northwest Iowa Community College is hosting FREE computer coding classes for children in kindergarten through 8th grade. The classes will be age appropriate for the grade level of each student. Students will learn coding using familiar characters from video games to learn critical thinking and problem solving skills while acquiring basic computer coding abilities. Professionals who use coding in their everyday jobs will also talk about the importance of learning coding skills, so students can see the real world value in what they are learning.
Megan Dieken, Youth Programming Event Planner, explained, “NCC is offering an after-school coding program for students in grades K-8 starting this spring! We’ll be using familiar characters like Angry Birds & Minecraft to explore how computers, video game systems & more work. Contact me at mdieken@nwicc.edu for more information and to register your child!”
The classes will be held the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month after school until 4pm. Classes begin February 6. Transportation to NCC from East Elementary and Sheldon Middle School and a snack will be provided! A parent/guardian must pick up their student(s) by 4pm at NCC in Building A.
Registration deadline is Friday, January 11, 2019 in order to begin February 6. If your student wishes to attend after the deadline, simply email Megan Dieken at mdieken@nwicc.edu or call her at 712-324-5061, ext. 308 and your student may attend as soon as the information is received.
