Estill County 4-H has a new club this year! As the need for tech based skills only increases, the Estill County 4-H Computer Programing Club started last spring and has really taken off this year.
The youth have been working hard to learn basic code reading and writing skills. Using Scratch coding the club has been developing their own game programs and working to develop a club website that they hope to have ready by the end of the school year.
The club started by meeting once a month and now plans to meet twice a month because the youth are enjoying it so much and “We just can’t get it all done once a month”. We are planning some career exploration trips this summer for these young people to local tech companies and are excited to see what all this club has in store.
Any Estill County youth between the ages of 9 – 18 who would like more information about this club or any other 4-H program may call the Estill County Extension Office at 606-723-4557.
