Teen Room , Main Branch
For ages 7-17. (Children 9 and under must be accompanied by an adult).
The Concord Free Public Library is excited to invite videogame designer and master coder Matthew Mackowski for Make Your Own Videogame with Coderdojo from 2-4 pm in the Teen Lounge. Teen participants will have the opportunity to learn the basics of coding and get an inside look at the videogame industry and what it takes to become a designer. Or if you already have projects you are working on, bring them in for consultation.
This is not only a great opportunity for young coders to receive feedback on their projects, but to practice team-building, taking and receiving criticism, and solving problems collaboratively.
CoderDojo is a global movement of free, volunteer-led, community-based programming clubs for young people. Anyone aged seven to seventeen can visit a Dojo where they can learn to code, build a website, create an app or a game, and explore technology in an informal, creative, and social environment.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops.
