The Nesmith Library is introducing a Coding Club for students in grades 3 through 5. A high school volunteer will introduce children to the basics of Scratch. Scratch is an online coding platform intended to teach the basic concepts of computer programming. With Scratch, you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations. Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively.
The library will host three one hour sessions available during the spring. The Coding Club will meet on Wednesday March 15, April 12, and May 10 from 4-5pm. Each meeting will be a new lesson that is different and independent of the other. Students may sign up for one or all three of these upcoming programs.
Space is limited and registration is required. Stop by the front circulation desk or call the library at 432-7154 to register. For more information on the program, please ask for Sylvie Brikiatis or Jane McCue.
