What topics would your kids be interested in learning about?

There is a general interest in coding. Many kids are interested in game design or storytelling.

Have your kids ever coded before?

Most of the kids I encounter have used Scratch. Some students in the upper school take the java class. Some teach themselves some python through Codeacademy. I'm pretty confident that most kids don't know how to code and have not had much exposure to it.

How did you hear about us?

Introduction

I'm a librarian at a K-12 independent school in town. Current passions include integrating maker (read: hands-on) learning in schools. Especially libraries.
