Bits ‘n Bytes is our after-school club open to students in 3rd-6th grade in San Antonio (and beyond). We meet virtually on Mondays and Wednesdays to introduce young learners to computational thinking through fun, engaging, and interactive activities. We offer three rotating series so students can grow their skills in several areas:

  • Code Adventures: Students build their programming abilities by working in a variety of block coding environments.
  • Digital Literacy: From cyber security to digital citizenship, Youth Code Jam staff introduce students to a variety of topics to make them better computer and internet users.
  • Puzzle Club: We practice our problem-solving skills by working through logic puzzles together! Students will stretch their strategic thinking by approaching a puzzle from a few perspectives, which will help them build their program design abilities.

Age: 3rd - 6th grade

Join us via Zoom for live sessions.

Registration closes for each session at noon (12 p.m.) CT on the day of the program.
