Kids Can Code!

If you missed this past weekend's Coding With Minecraft program or you came and wanted more, take a look at some of the resources we've got!

Our Saturday Science program for December was a fantastic chance to learn about computer programing and coding using Minecraft, a popular online construction game. Thi Sarkis from the Rhode Island Computer Museum brought in computers ready for kids to use to learn some coding basics with the game. We had to limit registration to the number of computers available, but that doesn't mean you can't still learn some basic coding in other ways!
