From MPL’s Coding For Kids webpage:
“Whether you’re interested in learning how to code or learning about current issues in the software industry, join us for Madison Public Library’s coding events this fall.
Upper elementary and middle school students are invited to Kids Code Madison, a weekly, drop-in coding club. Kids Code Madison will be hosted on Thursdays at 6:00PM at Hawthorne Library. In this volunteer-led club program, youth can program their own interactive stories, games and animations using programs and tools like Scratch and Code Studio. New and experienced kid programmers and their parents are welcome! This program runs from September 22nd to December 8th. Information for youth as well as interested volunteer mentors can be found at kidscodemadison.org.
Looking for even more information on the coding and software industry? On Monday, October 24th, from 6:30-8:30PM stop by Central Library for a film screening of CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap. Following the film screening, participate in the Q & A presented in partnership with Madison’s Women in Tech meetup, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, and Wisconsin Public Television.
CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap exposes the dearth of American female and minority software engineers and explores the reasons for this gender gap and digital divide. The film highlights breakthrough efforts that are producing more diverse programmers and shows how this critical gap can be closed. CODE asks: What would society gain from having more women and minorities code and how do we get there?”
