Coding For Kids
The BGC - Webster Dudley has great news. Beginning December 4, we will be offering a new program for our members two days a week (for those interested via signup by parents). Coding. What is Coding? Coding is what makes it possible for us to create computer software, apps and websites. Your browser, your OS, the apps on your phone, Facebook, and this website – they're all made with code.
We will be using Bitsbox for this program which has been lauded as a great (beginners) tool for all to use. With Bitsbox, children learn to program by creating fun apps that work on computers and gadgets like iPads and Android tablets. The Bitsbox.com website provides each child with a virtual tablet and a place to type their code. The experience starts with lots of guidance, first showing learners exactly what to type, then quickly encouraging them to modify and expand their apps by typing in new commands.
Program registration will begin the week of November 20 and close on November 29. If you have any question or concerns please feel free to contact Shawn (Program Director) for additional assistance.
