Forks Branch Library
On Wednesday, December 11 at 2:30pm the Forks Branch Library of the North Olympic Library System (NOLS) will celebrate an Hour of Code™. During this session, children ages 9-12 can join the Hour of Code™ by working and playing with BBC micro:bits! Much like a tiny, pocket-sized computer, the BBC micro:bit encourages children to learn basic coding and programming skills to prepare them for today’s tech-savvy world.
Hour of Code™ is an annual, worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, believing that every student should have the opportunity to learn computer science – it helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path.
The ‘Hour of Code™’ is a nationwide initiative by Computer Science Education Week and Code.org to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming.
