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!
Kids ages 9 to 12 are invited to join us on Monday, December 23 @ 3:00 p.m. This month we are reading, Auggie and Me by R.J. Palacio.
Wonder tells the story of Auggie Pullman: an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face, whose first year at school changed the lives and the perspectives of everyone around him. Auggie and Me is a new side to the Wonder story: three new chapters from three different characters – bully Julian, oldest friend Christopher and classmate Charlotte – giving an insight into how Auggie has touched their own lives. Thought-provoking, surprising, infuriating, heartbreaking and heartwarming, Auggie and Me is a must-read for the thousands of readers who loved Wonder. -Google
