Scratch comes to Emerald Plaza

Computer coding is alive at Emerald Plaza this fall.  In September, the After School Code Club began and we have taught over a dozen kids how to code using Scratch - a block-based programming language developed out of MIT.  Participants have used Scratch to tell animated stories and make games using instructions from Code Club International, a volunteer organization that aims to encourage students to develop coding skills through free education.

As a follow-up to the Code Club we would like to extend an invitation to learn a little bit of computer science, this time without using a computer.  Join us during Canada Learns Code week to learn how to count and draw like a computer.  This event on December 8th from 2:30-3:30 will teach the basics of binary and pixels.
