Google's CS First is a free program that increases student access and exposure to computer science (CS) education through after-school, weekend, and summer programs. Clubs can be run by librarians or community volunteers. Materials:
• are completely free and available online
• are targeted at students in grades 4-8
• can be tailored to fit your schedule and needs
• involve block-based coding using Scratch
• are themed to attract youth with varied interests
