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!
- Take a look in our catalog for a wide variety of kid-friendly books on coding and computer programming.
- Check out code.org's Hour of Code programs.
- Coding Kiddos has more resources for kids, parents, and teachers.
- Learn to code at Code Academy.
- Scratch is a simple programming language developed at MIT.
- There are some Minecraft resources for kids too:
We hope you had fun if you came to the program and will continue to have fun with coding even if you didn't. Join us next month for our January Science Saturday on 1/14 at 10:00 a.m. for a paper airplane workshop!
