Coding Isn't Scary

"Coding" is either really, really, really cool, or incredibly terrifying...depending on who you're talking to. I've been exploring coding with the kids at my school, and they absolutely love it.

If you're curious about coding, come and try it for yourself. We'll be using iPads and the Hopscotch app to build our own games using drag-and-drop blocks of code. Hey...if Grade 3 students can do it, you can do it.

* I'll have iPads for all participants, but if you want to bring your own iPad with Hopscotch already installed, feel free to do so.
