Description


Kids Learning Code. Programming with Ruby. Beginner workshop for ages 9-12.



Computers don't really understand English... So how do we communicate with them? Through programming, of course!


Ruby is an open-source coding language that allows us to speak to our computers through step-by-step instructions, and then be able to see (or hear!) the computer's response. Ruby can be used to communicate anything from a simple mathematical equation, to an interactive game. We will use repl.it, a free, cloud coding environment, to make our programs come to life.


Kids/Girls Learning Code is excited to host this creative workshop for beginners, which will cover essential terms in the Ruby language such as: integers, strings, and variables - all while focusing on how an everyday computer operates and understands input. Learning Ruby will allow the child in your life to create games and solve puzzles in a fun and engaging way, all while generating endless opportunities to use a computer as a creative outlet!


Each Programming with Ruby workshop has the same flow, but different activities. Come and create new programs every time!
