Description

Looking for a fun way to spark your child's interest in coding? Consider Jewelbots.
Join us for:

  • An entry-level coding workshop geared towards kids (also fun for grownups)
  • Facepainting
  • Coding for Arduino!
  • A Craft Table
  • Learning and fun for all ages!

A hands-on event for kids and adults ages 8 and up to dig in and learn to code in C++ via the Jewelbots API. The goal of the event is to introduce adults and kids alike to the fun and magic of coding while learning about connected hardware and making new friends!

This a fun, inclusive family-friendly event for experienced coders and newbies alike.

This event is free and open to anyone that wants to attend and watch, but if you wish to rent a Jewelbot for the workshop, you'll need to reserve one in advance.

You'll also need a laptop with Linux, MacOS, or Windows (Chromebooks without Linux do not work). Save time and pre-download the Arduino IDE.

You can also purchase your own Jewelbot to bring to the workshop.

Note to participants that need to leave early: If you wish to attend the workshop please attend the first part starting at 6:30. The second part (from 7:30 to 8:30) is optional, providing additional time for further exploration.

Come early, park (free) at the Meydenbauer Center, walk to California Pizza Kitchen for our Kid-Friendly Buffet, and then back to the Meydenbauer for the workshop starting at 6:30.

Takeaways:

  • The workshop is free and open to anyone.
  • Optionally, you can reserve a Jewelbot to use during the workshop (which makes the workshop a lot more fun).
  • Reserving a Jewelbot is $10 (plus Eventbrite fees).
  • You'll need to bring your laptop to connect to your Jewelbot (download Arduino first).
  • Free parking at the Meydenbauer Center after 3 pm.
  • Kid-Friendly Buffet walking distance away right before the workshop is optional.
