An opportunity for kids and teens to not only try out cool gadgets, but to start gaining a competitive edge. Whatever field you’re interested in, this technology will be a part of it! Coding is not only fun, it’s quickly become a vital skill.
And it’s good for your brain: When you code, you take complex problems and break them down into smaller parts with logical, computational thinking. This logical thinking is a powerful tool in school, work and life. And while it is logic-based, it’s also an extremely creative activity. If you know how to code, you can develop apps, video games, websites and more.
The library offers fun ways to teach this 21st century skill. We’ll break out all the toys: Dash Robot; meeperBOTs; Ozobots; Code & Go Robot Mouse, Bloxels and Arduino! For ages 10+
