What is CODESMYTHS you ask?
It is an opportunity to apply your problem solving skills in a self-directed environment where you learn how to program and write apps for computers of all sizes.  You get to collaborate with fellow classmates and learn a skill that is applicable in school and out in the workforce.  It may even be  a bit of FUN, especially as you get to design what you want to create.

Hailey, Lindsay and Emily presided over the Maker Space on Open House Night
The Maker Space was a very popular place to visit.  Many people stopped by to see how being creative with coding and circuits could be great fun.  Others checked out playing Minecraft on a large screen monitor.
