Great job to all the coders that participated in the Pumpkin Spice Coding Challenge. We held a drawing on December 13th and awarded 3 prizes. Congratulations!
Make-up Policy and Current Class Schedules
If your student misses a class due to illness or other conflict please contact us ahead of the scheduled class time to arrange a make up. Make-up classes must be arranged in advanced and made-up within 2 weeks of the missed class.
Pacific Time Zone (PT)
Masks remain optional at Galaxy Kids Code Club. Please note that the California Department of Public Health still strongly recommends masks in schools and child care settings. We will continue to provide masks for those that choose to wear them in class. We ask you to continue to watch for symptoms and keep your coder home if they are ill.
Jr. Code Club (ages 5-7)
The next session of Jr Code Club is just around the corner! This class is full of fun activities geared towards helping kids explore their creativity and learn age-appropriate computer programming concepts. Young coders will “learn through play” using robots, iPad apps, and unplugged (no screens) activities. Classes are 45 minutes long.
We have two 6-week sessions beginning January 11th and 12th, Wednesdays at 1:45pm or Thursdays at 3:00pm. Space is limited. Sign up here!
Upcoming Camps & Workshops
Camps are a great first exposure to new students and chance to do something a little different for our current students. Coders can expand their coding skills while also having fun. Registration for Spring Break and Summer Camps will be available in late January. We will of course be offering our most popular Roblox Camp and also excited to bring some new technology with our fleet of codable drones!
The theme for the next coding challenge is Year of the Rabbit. This is your coders chance to practice what they’ve learned by creating a custom project of their own. Entry deadline is February 10th. The raffle winners will be announced February 18th.
Virtual Game Night
Parent's Night Off / Kids Game Night
Start planning your night off! Our next Parent’s Night Off Event will be on Friday, February 10th at 6:30 PM PT. You get a night off and the kids get to have fun playing games, watching movies, and eating pizza. A win-win for the entire family. Register now here!
Open Instructor Positions
We are in search of part-time instructors to assist with our introductory level classes. Coding experience is a plus but not strictly required – we provide training and curriculum. Must have experience working with children ages 3-10 and be passionate about learning and teaching technology. Great position for a high school or college student, retired teacher, or parent.
