We are accepting requests for all days & all clubs at this time. If your school is far away (more than 1 hour driving distance from UT Dallas), consider having the club on Saturdays if possible. AfterSchool Clubs are NOT limited to schools - we can run them in other locations including private homes. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to start the discussion.
We have decided to offer FREE Coding Clubs in Spring 2019 thanks to generous sponsors (State Farm, Rockwell Collins & Mark Cuban Foundation), we want you to take the following responsibilities to make the club successful & maximize the value of sponsorship.
1. School should do its own registration - Select your club participants carefully. A typical coding club has 20-30 students with 2-3 instructors. We can provide an initial flyer that you can modify and use for distribution. 2. Here are a few proven options: a. Each teacher can nominate a few sincere students. b. Ask the students to submit an application form. c. Charge a small fee ($10-$25) to make them have a skin in the game. School can use this fee to compensate for the teacher OR buy a computer/resources for the lab. 3. Almost all coding clubs require a PC/laptop for each participant. Computer labs are ideal places to run clubs in most schools. 4. Let us know the registration count few days before the club start date, then we will assign the instructors and provide you the contact information. We will also satisfy the necessary online criminal background check requirements required by most ISDs.5. We want a school teacher or a volunteer to take care of pickup, dropoff & kids' discipline issues in the classroom. Our instructors are in-charge only for the instruction, NOT supervision of kids.6. We want the most students to continue for all the weeks. If we see the big drop-off in attendance, we reserve the right to cancel the club, since it is not the best use of sponsorship dollars.
