Coding Camp! Serious Computer Programming for Youth at the Santa Fe Public Library
145 Washington Ave
Santa Fe, NM 87501
This is free a hands-on 10-hour course focused on kids (6th grade or older) in elementary, middle and high school, but it is open to anyone. It will involve serious work and a good amount of overcoming one’s comfort zone. The goal is to get started on a path that leads to serious programming, rather than using a canned “for kids” programming environment which will never be used for real work.
There is no cost: the course is free and taught by volunteers. We thank the LANL foundation for a grant which has helped us purchase materials, and we thank the Santa Fe Public Library for offering its space and resources.
To register your child (in 6th grade or older) for the camp, start by visiting this website for more details; https://sites.google.com/site/santafecoding/. Email Mark at the address found at the bottom of the page to reserve your spot. Space is limited.
The next workshop will take place at the Main Library (145 Washington Ave.) These are 10 hour courses, and students must commit to taking the full course.
Saturday, September 15 (10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. and 1:15 p.m.-5:30 p.m.), continuing Sunday, September 16 (1 p.m.-4:45 p.m.).
