Next meeting, February 8: HOUR of CODE Challenge

Saturday, February 8, 2014, 1-3PM
Rutland Free Library, Fox Room (upstairs)
10 Court Street, Rutland, VT

All ages welcome.  Bring your laptops.  We will do the Code.org HOUR of CODE” challenge.

Learn the basic concepts of computer programming, using a fun visual approach. Using video-game maze theme, build short computer programs to make Angry Bird catch Bad Piggie, by snapping together Lego-like program code blocks on your screen. Later on you can make the Zombie find the Sun Flower in the corn maze.

In between the exercises you can view video messages from Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Black Eyed Peas founder will.i.am and NBA star Chris Bosh (he studied computer science in college).

Then print out your Certificate of Completion.  Proudly pose for a picture with your certificate. We will also create webpage slideshow of your HOUR of CODE photos.  We will start to talk about webpages and HTML, including the <image> tag (where the photos are displayed).

Others can choose to go “Beyond the Hour of Code“, or try out the Codecademy.com free tutorials.

Tell your friends and family about the new Rutland Tech Club.
