Kids’ Coding Club

Kids aged 6-10 are invited to create, tinker, and play the second Saturday of the month at 2:00 p.m.  Each month we’ll explore a new topic and activity to get a better understanding of coding and how it works!

12/14: Sequencing: One of the most important things to understand when building codes is sequencing.  This month we’ll use story charts and Beebots to understand why order matters.

1/11: Patterns: Spotting patterns makes coding easier.  We’ll use Botley the Coding Robot to explore how patterns can be used to simplify complex programs.

2/8: Design Thinking: Good programs aren’t built overnight.  They require many stages of testing and debugging.  We’ll use design thinking while we build with Cubelets.

3/14: Loops: Programmers use loops to create conditions for their robots.  We’ll use color codes and Ozobots to experiment with if/thens.

Space is limited.  Please call Bayne Library to register!
