The Hour of Code Movement sounds like something out of a Dan Brown novel, but instead of teaching about secret societies, teens can learn a secret code- computer code.
Anna Todd, Belle Isle librarian, is one of many organizers in the global movement designed to demystify computer code. The Belle Isle Library Hour of Code is Saturday, May 9, from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. and will be led by staff from the Microsoft Store.
“This is a great chance for teens to go behind the scenes and learn how to write code or programs and play in a gaming world of their own design,” says Todd. “Technology tutorials on TouchDevelop and Windows App Studio will be offered.”
Registration for the Hour of Code at Belle Isle Library is required.
