New for 2019 - Have a Look at Coding (HAL) is for Kids and Teens and is an expanded version of the Digital Media Lab’s popular Kids Code Club, now in its fourth year. It builds upon a student’s innate interest in gaming and computer technologies. Students will focus on core areas of computer programming in a self-paced, supportive environment.
HAL meets most Saturdays through the end of May from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm in the Main Library’s Digital Media Lab. In order to ensure computer availability for all participants, registration is required. To register for one or more sessions, please visit the event calendar and register for each session you would like to attend.
For Kids ages 8-12, HAL offers guided learning and individual exploration using Scratch! and other web-based tools. Children will develop familiarity with general syntax and logical operations. Drawing from a library containing many thousands of projects, kids become aware of the broad scope of coding disciplines, through ideas and projects available online.
This program is supported by the active involvement and participation of parents, mentors and volunteers. If you’re interested in guiding young minds towards a future in coding please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
