Coding and computer science are a new kind of digital literacy, and libraries all over the U.S. are stepping up to help everyone build 21st century skills. Come join our very own Code Club — No coding expertise necessary. Your kids can learn important tech skills and have fun along the way. They’ll work on learning how to make websites, video games, apps, animations, and more!
Code Club is made possible by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Science
- Go to https://scratch.mit.edu and create an account, and log in.
- Go to https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/editor/
- Create a short animation showcasing your coding abilities. Make it fun, interesting, cool, or whatever else you’d like to show off. You can even record your own sounds! Here’s an example — https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/395071802
- If you need help on what to do, or would like an example, sign into your code club account, and go to Missions — and click on Super Nice Super Hero. You don’t need someone else to help, but if you’d like to show it to your friend or parent when you’re done, go ahead.
- When finished, make sure your project is shareable. In an e-mail, send the link for it to email@example.com
- We can’t wait to see what you come up with! Happy coding!
You can get a jump start on coding by going to our Prenda Code Club — sign up and create your profile.
To make it as easy as possible for you to learn about coding and to have fun, you can now advance to your next mission or workout without having to get a signoff password entered in by a GLADL staff member.
When the library reopens, stop by the library and check in with a Code Coach — we are excited to see what you are doing and get you started on your next mission!
In-person Code Club is on hiatus while the library is closed. We are working on ways to share ideas and projects, so sign-up today online and start coding whereever you are!
No registration required. Just come ready to have fun. Only requirement is that coders be able to read!
