AFTER SCHOOL TRANSPORTATION

Guest what?! BUS 6 from BES/OHS has an after school drop-off location at the corner of Main St + Bank St. This is perfect for attending programming at local community organizations such as The Space On Main, The Hub: Teen Center, and Bradford Public Library. (Note: Make sure your student has a note giving them permission to ride Bus 6 and be dropped off in front of Star Cat Books.)

GIRLS WHO CODE

The Space On Main is an official host of Girls Who Code. Girls Who Code is on a mission to close the gender gap in technology and to change the image of what a programmer looks like and does by providing a safe and supportive environment of peers and role models where students learn to see themselves as computer scientists. We work with the Sphero Robotics curriculum, Swift Playgrounds, edClub’s Typing Club, and a variety of web design and development programs. This program is offered at no cost thanks to support from the NH Charitable Foundation & Hypertherm HOPE Foundation.
