Our world is surrounded by technology. Information, commerce, communication, and entertainment all rely on computers. But only a tiny fraction of us learn computer science, the basics of how computers work, or how to create software, apps, or web sites.
This year, to celebrate Computer Science Education Week (Dec 6-12), the Waupaca Area Public Library is joining a massive campaign to prepare our population for the 21st century.
The Hour of Code campaign has an audacious goal: to introduce 10 million students, including adults, to one hour of computer science. How can you participate? Join us for one of our Hour of Code/Beginner’s Guide to Computer Programming workshops during the week of Dec. 6:
- Monday, Dec. 7 from 6:00 to 8:00pm in the Conference Room (all ages welcome)
- Wednesday, Dec. 9 from 3:30 to 5:00pm (Homework Help 3rd and 4th grade students only).
- Thursday, Dec. 10 from 10:00 to 11:00am, during our regular Table Time hours in the Conference Room (all ages welcome)
