Check in here every Friday for a new Design Challenge. We will provide you with ideas for a full summer of fun things to make and do. It is all part of summer fun for kids and teens at the Kitsap Regional Library.
We all surf the web, play video games and use apps. But how are these things built? How are they maintained?
The answer is, by learning how to code! And the cool thing is, everyone can code. Especially, with help from a website like Code Academy.
Using interactive lessons, Code Academy walks you through each step of learning a language as you apply it to completing a project.
Once you complete a language lesson, you’ve developed programming skills! Code Academy has all sorts of fun projects you can work on with your new programming language skills. Build games or apps with ease.
Now you can show off your knowledge with a detailed profile. Share your computer programming skills, earn digital badges and join groups to find others interested in coding.
So go to the site, make a FREE account and start coding. Create the next great phone app, video game or website.
We’d love to see what you come up with. Email your photos to Digital Branch Manager, Jean Charters, at firstname.lastname@example.org for possible inclusion in a future blog post (under 1 MB file size please) or stop by your library to show off your creativity.
