Do you want to learn computer programming, or are you looking for a place to practice and improve your coding skills?  We invite you to join our online BARN Coders club on Thursday afternoons! If you’re new to coding, we’ll get you started with the Scratch programming language and support you in your learning process. This class is open to those unfamiliar with coding in Scratch, or those who are familiar with Scratch but want to join in the fun with others.

If you already know how to code, you’re welcome to come and work independently on your own projects, with experienced mentors on hand to answer questions and troubleshoot problems that arise. You’ll also get to learn from your peers and make new friends in the process! Parents, you are welcome to participate alongside your children. We look forward to seeing you and what you create in code!

Here is what you will need to have for the class:  

1.) A dependable internet connection.    

2.) A computer or tablet able to run Scratch in one of the following browsers:   

Desktop Compatible Browsers 
  • Chrome 
  • Microsoft Edge
