COVID-19 Newsletter, Volume 6


A Message from C4K

Dear C4K Family,

We have been seeing and hearing about a lot of terrific work by our members over the last few weeks. Either on their own, with a mentor, or in one of the Virtual Meet-ups, members are making art, trying new music applications, programming in Roblox Studio, and more.

Beyond STEAM activities, it has been great to hear about members staying engaged with school and even working with mentors when they have questions. Families should know that we are happy assist with school work if a student needs some help. We have mentors and volunteers ready to provide support online. Just send an email to c4kmaker@computers4kids.net and we will get a session scheduled!

We miss you!  Stay safe and in touch.

Sincerely,
Kala, Tricia, Jill, and Colin
