An eight week program that will introduce youth to robotics and coding basics via Lego Mindstorm and Scratch.
These lessons use computational thinking and coding as a entree point for youth to learn about their community. Each week a community member talks with the youth about their life and/or work in the community. Youth get the chance to ask questions and then take what they learned into the next phase of their computational thinking work. The lessons provide a good example of how to connect youth to community through computational thinking and coding and give library staff ideas on how they might do something similar in their own community.
