Kids Can Code Night


Jump start your daughter or son’s interest in programming at this special interactive night dedicated to kids from around six to twelve years old!  Your kids can get started today building apps, games, and directing robots using simple languages and tools.  Georgian and his daughter will show you how they worked together to complete fun puzzles that sparked her interest in code.  Fun retail robots exist today that grow with your child, allowing them to start playing with them at a young age, and coding for them using progressively more complex languages until they are building mobile apps for them on today’s professional modern platforms.

Afterwards, Chris will follow up with an introduction to simple game development environments you may already have in your home.  If you have Windows 8, you could already be using Project Spark to interactively create games that run on the PC and Xbox One that automatically get shared with the world.  Chris and his four year old daughter had a blast making games together using simple tools she could interact with and enjoy.

Please bring your youngsters for this interactive program complete with prizes and snacks!
