Computer Science Education Week at Chicago Public Library

Teens love technology at Chicago Public Library. Year-round, they are engaged with everything from circuitry to video production, so we’re excited to continue our exploration of technology during Computer Science Education Week at our teen Hour of Code events.

From December 7 through December 13 we’re hosting a wide range of programs to learn coding, including making interactive holiday cards and messing around with littleBits. One of the joys of computer science is how accessible it is through activities like gaming, robot racing and hip hop. It’s not only fun, but practical, too. As we guide teens in learning how to create their own website and building an online portfolio, they’ll be learning skills that prepare them for their futures.

Teens are not the only ones who will be celebrating the Hour of Code at CPL, so be sure to check out our events for kids, teens and adults and explore our learn how to code resources, too.

We hope you will join us to mess around with technology, explore computer science and try something new! Celebrate Computer Science Education Week by finding an Hour of Code event at your local Library here: http://bit.ly/1Oh08pc.
