Code Club is back with Social Distancing! We will meet in the 1931 Room, have fun and flex our coding muscles – on computers, robots, and no tech/low tech ways – your imagination is the only limit!  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!  For ages 8-18.  Code Club is made possible by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

This is a drop-in event -- no need to register or worry about catching up to other coders -- everybody works at their own speed and the goal is fun and collaboration.  You will be coding before you know it.
