    The Programming Club is focused on developing and sharing our passion for everything technology.  Our goal is to develop teamwork and critical thinking skills to compete in technology-related competitions.  Programming experience is not required to join the club.  At meetings, club members will compete in teams with logic puzzles and programming questions.  Additionally, members will have the opportunity to listen to a technology-related presentation from one of the club officers, or to prepare for an upcoming coding competition, hackathon, or community outreach project. 


    Programming Club meetings are held on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month in Mrs. Klosky's room (419) from 2:45 - 3:45.  To stay updated, make sure to join our Google Classroom with the code: dpa31d


    The club will also prepare to host and attend Pine-Richland’s annual hackathon “Hack the Ram” in February. Click here for the Programming Club web page and more info on Hack the Ram.
