Codecraft Clubs provide a great 1st-course option and are hosted at schools as a 1-hour per week after-school activity in the school media center or computer lab. Student families pay $10 per week,  based on the total number of weeks in a club year at the school’s discretion. Want to offer a Codecraft Club at your school?
