DIY @ Your Library

This year, celebrate Teen Tech Week (March 8-14) at your neighborhood library. Teens are invited to see how learning extends beyond the classroom while still having fun. Teens are invited to come out explore, create and collaborate with several STEAM-related crafts and  activities.  

Teen Tech Week: Internet Game Programming

Teen Tech Week is an opportunity for public libraries to highlight all things technology and computer science geared to teens.  Popular Internet games and mobile apps are programmed with a high-powered, yet easy to learn language known as Python.  Please join the Woodridge Library on the above date and time as we play "Code Combat" to learn the basics of Python coding for game navigation.  Best for ages 10 and older.
