Details: We have a lot of opportunities for kids 0-6 at the library (storytimes, for example), and plenty of programs for children and teens 7-17... but there is that particular group of children that are ages 5-7 that we we always wish we could design more for - specifically! That's why Chris will be leading a kid's "Intro to programming" geared towards children with a suggested age range of 5-9. We will be utilizing the awesome educational programming tool ScratchJr to explore the basics of learning how to program! ScratchJR is an easy to use, "Drag n' drop" style app that is absolutely free! Your child will get the chance to play around with different characters, backgrounds, colors, and programming methods in order to develop a fundamental understanding of how programming revolves around "rules". And, best of all, they'll get the chance to play around and add their own creative tastes! We can't wait to see you there!
Call Chris with any questions!
