Kids can code

Every year in library we push ourselves a little further in our knowledge of computer science. At first it was an equalizer for students. Students who normally found school challenging or perhaps not challenging enough were engaging in coding activities and teaching other students. Eight years later, kids are pushing me for more challenging tasks including access to Python. Inspired by the FabLearn conference, 2019 became the year of coding for the good of others. Students were challenged to see technology not just as fun, but as a way to improve quality of life.
