Event Details

Did you know learning computer programming and coding is "the new
literacy"?  Who says so?  Oh, only everyone from Bill Gates to Mark
Zuckergberg, Will.i.am, Chris Bosh, and the founders of Twitter,
Dropbox, and Zappos among others.  Even the late, great, Steve Jobs
has something to say on the subject.  (Check out the video on
code.org.)  And so, here’s a class to get students started!
Students in this class start slowly with visual pre-coding, using code
blocks to build a video game, much like one would use legos to build a
castle.  Then we move into  Scratch, Game Maker and MINECRAFT.
Hey, if you can’t beat em’, join em’!  Between us parents though, the
educational aspects of Minecraft are quite compelling and we will be
diving into learning how to read and find coordinates on a graph all
while building Minecraft worlds.  Oh and did we mention that the class
will not only be taught by a local Computer programmer but also by a
few local high school programmers who have picked up a few Minecraft
tricks and secrets that they would like to share!

****Please bring your own laptop for this class so you can continue working on projects at home***


This class meets Wednesdays at 5:15pm on May 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th, June 5th and 12th.
