Have you ever wanted to learn how to program websites or just learn more about computers and the cool ways that you can use them? The Coding Club is a popular club at SRV that teaches interested students skills in basic coding.
Members of the club are taught how to use the Python program to learn basic coding skills and how to apply them. This club has been going on for three years and is currently supervised by Physics teacher Matt Robison.
Joining the coding club is easy. Anyone can join regardless of experience.
“We like to think of ourselves as one of the most welcoming clubs for inexperienced students,” said co-officer Eric Michaud, who has been in the club for three years and is a senior at SRVHS.
Eric plans to major in computer science next year, so this club has given him the opportunity to practice his skills.
The officers of the club teach members how to use the Python coding language which according to senior co-officer and three year member of the club Armaan Singh, is “very easy to use and is the most powerful coding language.”
This club teaches its members basic programming which they can build off to learn more complex skills in the future. The goal for the year is that students will eventually be able to study machine learning algorithms which is the foundation for artificial intelligence. Advanced members of the club will be able to teach computers how to recognize patterns and eventually recognize handwritten digits.
Both Eric and Armaan agree that creating and running this club has been rewarding because they are able to help other people learn about a subject that is interesting and exciting to them. They like the sense of community that this club has created based on a mutual interest among its members.
If you are interested in joining the coding club, contact Eric Michaud or Armaan Singh for additional information and details on how to be successful in the club. The club meets on Thursdays after school in SRV classroom H1. All are welcome, regardless of prior skill.
