Richmond Library continues the popular Code Club this fall. In this informal educational setting, kids (and adults) will learn computer programming skills through a series of tutorials and projects. They will work towards building websites, video games, phone apps, animations and more, all the while, learning how to become better problem solvers and critical thinkers.
Who: ages 8+ (adults too!)
When: Wednesdays, September 11th - November 13th
Time: Two times available 3:50-4:50 pm or 4:50-5:50 pm
Meet in the library basement.
We have a limited number of Chromebooks for use or you can bring your own device.
Not sure what coding is all about? Don’t know what an ozobot is? Join us for an exploratory hour where we will build a maze out of books and guide a BeeBot, Ozobot & Sphero through it. Use bananas, alligator clips, a Chromebook and Makey Makey to make a Banana Piano. Take coding beyond the computer and see how much fun it can be.
When: Wednesday, November 20th, 3:50-4:50 pm
While traditionally libraries have been a place to borrow books, they are increasingly transforming into a community resource center, offering classes, courses, and experiences for people of all ages and interests. Code club fits with that mission.
Richmond Library is partnering with technology company, Prenda, to offer their club. Prenda provides software, training, and support for libraries around the country to run engaging programming where kids can learn how to code. Learn more at Prenda or login to work on coding.
