See the registration link for information about Computer Science and Code.org.  

Week 1, July 7: This session will include an introduction and overview of Code.org as well as an unplugged activity. Parents/caregivers are required to stay for this session in order to learn more about Code.org and how your child can use it at home or in the library.  Unplugged Activity: Graph Paper Programming--students write an algorithm (a set of instructions) using predefined commands to direct their classmates to reproduce a drawing.  After logging onto to Code.org, students will write programs that get a character through a maze. They’ll understand the importance of sequence in the programs they write.

Supported by the Amadeo Family, registration required for each session; no fee. For children entering grades 3, 4 and 5; program runs through Aug. 4.
