Kids will learn about coding in a fun way while playing with Code-a-pillar and Cubetto learning toys! You must register online. Ages 5-8 only. Limited to 9 participants.
Our first two successful Science Saturday events were:
Coding with Ozobots (Oct 7) — Children let their imaginations soar by designing complex ‘tracks’ for Ozobot robots to follow, while adding ‘codes’ to control how fast they moved and enable other tricks like spinning. Kids (and adults) were having so much fun they weren’t ready to leave when the workshop was over. One young coder said, “I love this!”
