Coding Capers
Laura Williams, Instructor

Let the coding begin! Coding is the writing of computer programs and is a lot easier than you might imagine. There's something for everyone: creativity, logic, art, math, storytelling, design and problem solving all taught through the step by step creation of stories, games, and animations in a fun-filled setting. Join us on this exciting journey that will transform you from a user of technology to a creator and help build coding literacy, a necessary skill in today's computer world.

Pow! Superheroes in Training
Elizabeth Hummel, Instructor

Join the fun and find the super hero in you! Armed with art supplies and imagination, participants will explore the world of superheroes and use these personas as a catalyst to create their own superhero identity. Based on each young superhero's talents and abilities, trainees will create a name, weapon free costume, special powers, and personal logo. Activities will emphasize creativity, imagination and movement. Discussion will focus on the challenges superheroes might face, how their powers are used for good and how they might use their unique abilities to become every day superheroes in real life.
