Yes, 3rd-5th grade students do need to register on HQ, but their parent/guardians must do it for them. Girls Who Code HQ helps Facilitators and Club members communicate and stay on the same page. And there are so many other benefits, including:
Resources & Support: HQ registrations are how we identify the number of students in a Club, and the level of support and resources each Club needs.
Parent Participation: We want to ensure that parents are aware of what their children are working on. HQ is a collaborative environment that allows parents to stay in the loop about what their child is learning and doing in their Club.
- Ongoing Support: As students advance from 3rd-5th grade Clubs to 6th-12th grade Clubs, they will receive expanded access to the wide variety of resources that are contained within HQ.
3rd-5th grade students may be enrolled in their Club on HQ in two ways:
- Facilitators can provide the Club Code to students and parents and have families complete their HQ registration independently.
- Facilitators may use the "Invite Students" button on their own HQ homepage, using the parent or guardian’s email address.
