CODING CLUB – WINTER SESSION JUST ADDED!

Our curriculum teaches new coders the basics while challenging more experienced coders to create a wide variety of more complex programs. Silver Knights provides a laptop for every child. At the end of the session, each child takes home a USB with all their programs on it!
