KidCode

Location: Sunnyside
Registration: Not required

Advanced computer-programming architect Hal Eagar will instruct children ages 7-9 in the basics of programming and teach them how to animate a self-created entity using Scratch, a computer-coding language from MIT. No computer or typing skills are necessary for this course. “Kids already have skills from playing video games,” says Eagar. “Using Scratch is almost like building with Legos.” Preregistration is required in person on September 23 or 24 at 4:00 p.m.
