Storytelling with Scratch: An Opportunity for Kids to Learn Coding

The Newark Public Library is hosting an eight-week program designed to teach kids in grades 5-8 the basics of coding.

Every Thursday from January 5th through February 23rd, 2017 a small group will meet at 4pm to learn how to design their own stories, create and share animations, and learn how technology is used in the film and media industries. The CS First Storytelling club is a social event, and no previous computer or coding experience is necessary – any child within the age limits is encouraged to join.

Due to the immersive and one-on-one nature of the program, space is extremely limited. There will only be 10 spaces available in the program, and we ask that everyone who sign up commit to attending all 8 sessions. If the program fills up, we will have a wait list, and, depending on interest, we may host another session of the program in the future.

In order to register for the program, please call the library at (315) 331-4370, or sign up online at www.newarklibrary.org. Scratch is a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at MIT Media Lab. It is available for free at scratch.mit.edu.

The Newark Public Library is located at 121 High Street, in Newark, NY. It is open 9:30am-8pm Monday through Thursday, 9:30am-6pm Friday, and 9:30am-3pm Saturday. For more information contact the library at (315) 331-4370.
