RBG Film and Discussion
2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

RBG is a documentary about the life, career, and enduring legacy of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The film follows Ginsburg's journey from her girlhood in Brooklyn to her appointment to the highest court in the land. Along the way, it details how she graduated as one of only nine women in her law class, overcame years of gender discrimination, and argued milestone rights cases before the Supreme Court. Through interviews with Ginsburg, her adult children, colleagues, friends, and even clients, the filmmakers also explore how Ginsburg has become a cultural icon (aka "the Notorious RBG").

Rated PG, there are a few insults and brief verbal/textual references to topics including rape, abortion, and death in childbirth. Registration is not required, but attendees should plan to participate in both the viewing and the discussion of the film.

Beginning Photography Series (snow date)
6:45 PM - 8:15 PM

 

Join professional photographer Jeanine Vitale of Prism Point Photography and unlock the potential of your camera! 

Its fabulous tools are waiting to help you create beautiful pictures.

This six-week class will introduce you to basic techniques you can add onto and use for the rest of your life.

Learn what those magical terms mean and how to apply them. Starting with composition and point of focus, we’ll move onto automatic settings, semi-automatic, and manual settings. Covering F-stop, ISO, shutter speed, use of flash and evaluating light we’ll end with a glimpse of some of the fabulous uses of Photoshop.

For these classes ideally, you should have access to a digital camera that has at least semi-automatic settings (i.e. A, Av, T, Tv) or indicated by icons such as a flower, a runner, a mountain. Even better is a camera that goes to full manual mode where you can learn to control the F-stop, shutter speed and ISO separately. While the ideas of story-telling, composition and point of focus can be applied to any form of visual art, a cell phone camera will not allow you to fully practice the other techniques and tools. However, you’re welcome to observe any class with or without another form of camera.

Students are encouraged to practice on their own between classes and are encouraged (though not required) to submit pictures for viewing by the class or privately by the teacher for additional assistance. All class notes and examples will be posted on Drop Box, which is  very useful if you need to miss a class or just want to review the material later.

The following topics will be covered during the 6 weeks:

- An overview of photography basics; telling a story

- Composition and point of focus; semi-automatic settings

- Manual settings - f-stop, shutter speed, ISO

- Lighting: artificial, natural and ambient. This topic takes two weeks.

- Using Photoshop basics to manipulate images; assembling your story

Cost: $50 per person for the 6-part series payable to the Northborough Free Library (must be paid in advance of the first class).

Bag It Film and Discussion
2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

 

Americans use 60,000 plastic bags every five minutes-single-use disposable bags that we mindlessly throw away. But where is "away?" Where do the bags and other plastics end up, and at what cost to our environment, marine life and human health? Bag It follows "everyman" Jeb Berrier as he navigates our plastic world. Jeb is not a radical environmentalist, but an average American who decides to take a closer look at our cultural love affair with plastics. Jeb's journey in this documentary film starts with simple questions: Are plastic bags really necessary? What are plastic bags made from? What happens to plastic bags after they are discarded? Jeb looks beyond plastic bags and discovers that virtually everything in modern society-from baby bottles, to sports equipment, to dental sealants, to personal care products-is made with plastic or contains potentially harmful chemical additives used in the plastic-making process. When Jeb's journey takes a personal twist, we see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up with us and what we can do about it. Today. Right now.

 

Registration is not required, but attendees should plan to participate in both the viewing and the discussion of the film.

Code Wiz Demo (Ages 7-9)
6:00 PM - 6:45 PM
Drag & Drop Blocks 
Coding can be for kids of all ages! Even beginners who have no prior coding experience before are able to jump in and learn too! Kids learn to code using visual code blocks that represent real programming concepts that scale from easy to advanced. They learn about sequencing, loops, infinite loops, conditionals, events and more. With our Drag and Drop Platform, kids learn to code by creating their own games and animations! 
 
Drag & Drop Python 
Our visual python platform allows for students to create interactive games and animations using drag and drop Python. The great thing about this platform is kids can drag the python block, see it turn to real code when it is dropped in the editor and then edit it! Kids don’t need to be bogged down by typing out every line of code. They can focus on bringing their own ideas to life with python. Our curriculum teaches kids basic to advanced sequencing, loops, conditionals, events, functions and more. They also start to learn the basics of Python syntax. It is perfect preparation for programming in full text-based Python. Our coaches are engaged with students keeping their interests in mind, and are able to help them through their learning experience!

Code Wiz Demo (Ages 10-15)
7:00 PM - 7:45 PM
Game-Based Python 
Learn programming with a coding strategy game. Learn Python as you defeat ogres, solve mazes, and level up. Once kids have mastered the basics, they move on to advanced python where they use open source libraries to create their own python games from scratch. Like many of our platforms, our python platform allows for personalized learning of all experience levels. Whether a student has coded before or not, they are able to jump right in and begin their journey through code! Kids will learn sequencing, loops, conditionals, events and object oriented programming. 
 
Java 
Students learn the basics of Java through our interactive lessons and mini projects. Once kids are comfortable with the basics of Java, the kids are able to program actors in games that they create using java. Kids also have the option to create text-based games such as “tic tac toe” using object oriented principles that they have learned. This platform is for all experience levels, whether you have coding experience or not. Our coaches are here to walk students through their personalized learning at a pace that works for them! Our Java curriculum covers all the basics from sequencing, loops, conditionals, functions to advanced topics such as Object Oriented Programming. 
 
HTML / CSS / Javascript 
Kids will learn to code awesome websites in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. HTML, CSS and Javascript are the building blocks of the web. Kids will learn to create their first fully styled landing page, complete with multi-column layouts, modern navigation elements, and mobile responsive design. Kids will learn to use JavaScript to add dynamic functionality and interactivity to webpages!
