For anyone who has wondered how computer apps are developed, Wilton Library is offering an afternoon of entertaining education for adults and children with Breaking Code: Create What’s Behind Angry Birds and Other Fun Apps — A One-Hour Entertaining Lesson in Coding, on Tuesday, Dec. 10. The event coincides with Computer Science Education Week, a national movement to promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).
The same one-hour coding session will be given throughout the afternoon for adults and children ages 6 and up, beginning with the first lesson from 1 to 2 p.m., followed by sessions at 2:30 to 3:30, 4 to 5, and the final gathering from 5:30 to 6:30. Each hour begins with the same short introduction to an online class. Participants may bring their own personal devices such as tablets, smart phones, and laptops, or use the computers that will be set up by the library for this purpose. Participants will be able to go at their own speed moving quickly through each level, or take their time to try out the basics of computer science.
