About this event

Come join us on Saturday May 20th 2023 and May 27th. 2023 for our new workshop Zookeeper’s Coding Adventure for Boys 8 to 12.

We’ll be combining Coding with Animals! Does your boy show an interest in animals and ever wonder what it takes to be a zookeeper? Well, the answer may surprise them.

In this workshop, your child combines their passion for animals and game development to create a Zookeeper’s Adventure. The block-based coding experience guides your child through basic storytelling design actions for games, including movement, randomness, positioning, and the creation and destruction of elements.

In this set of activities, students use the power of coding to help manage a zoo. Beginner-friendly with enough of a challenge for more advanced coders. The step-by-step instructions focus on projects that involve movement and interaction.


As students go through a zookeeper’s adventure, they create their zookeeper sprite, design exhibits, and take care of animals. Throughout these experiences, they will use computer science and game design concepts.
