Code Convention

Computer code is being seen more and more as a useful skill for anyone, as well as a great way to enhance logic, creativity, and marketability.  This "Code Convention" class will, true to its name, provide and time and place for people to share their skills, enthusiasm, and interests.  Kids will learn some basic coding in whole-group activities, but much of the time they will work individually or in small groups to co-teach each other and explore areas of personal interest in more depth.

Lets use the following three websites for tutorials and projects.  Each will have a different location in the room.  You can go to the place you want as well as utilize whatever lessons you want.  Spend some of your time during each class session discussing this stuff with other people and sharing your projects.
