Kingsport Public Library invites students, grades 4th-8th, to join our Tech Club for a 10 week course in coding! This Winter/Spring we will be offering two courses- Coding 101 for beginners and Python for more advanced students.
Coding 101– Tuesdays 4:30-5:30 February 6th-April 24th – Teaches students the basic concepts of computer coding through interactive activities and hands-on computer coding using an online block based system called Scratch. Students will learn how to structure commands, debug programs, and even build their own basic video games. No coding experience required. Sign up form can be found here.
Python– Wednesdays 4:00-5:15ish February 7th-April 25th -Teaches students how to begin computer coding using a text-based computer programming language, Python. Python is one of the easier computer programming languages to learn and allows the programmer greater control over their computer programs than block based. The number of skills the class is able to learn will be based on the ability of the class to grasp concepts. There is a higher level of challenge and responsibility to this course. Students may be asked to complete tasks at home and therefore will need access to a computer where the necessary program can be downloaded. Some coding experience preferred. Sign up form can be found here. **Class is currently full, but feel free to join the wait list.**
