In support of Hour of Code™, Classroom Antics is offering free one-hour introductory Programming Events using Scratch to kids in grades 4-8 on December 3 & 10, 2016 to open their minds to what they can create with code. Participants don’t need any prior experience or even a computer, but space is limited so they will need to register.
These events are intended to be an introduction to programming to help kids determine their interest and discover the opportunities computer science can offer. At these Programming Events, kids will begin their journey into coding by developing their own interactive computer program using Scratch software. Kids can bring a USB flash drive to save the program they develop and receive a copy of Scratch. These events, offered in support of Hour of Code, will be held at the Classroom Antics Activity Center in North Royalton, OH.
Classroom Antics is offering these coding programs for free because we feel providing kids access to programming is so important because of the opportunities it creates for their future. According to Code.org, in 2015, 7 million openings in the U.S. were in occupations—including art and design—that value coding skills. And, no matter what kids do when they grow up, whether they go into medicine, business, education, or the arts, knowing how to create with technology will give them confidence and a competitive edge. And, what makes coding so great, is anyone can learn.
Register today to join us for one of these free introductory hour-long Programming Events in support of Hour of Code at the Classroom Antics Activity Center in North Royalton!
