Waseca Public Library was one of 28 libraries in 21 states (and the only one in the upper Midwest) to participate in the Ready to Code Co-Hort. Funded by American Library Association and sponsored by Google, Ready to Code aims to ensure libraries have the resources, capacity, and inspiration to embrace activities that promote computational thinking and computer science among our nation's youth. The session will focus on familiarizing participants with Ready to Code concepts and tools that help effectively teach coding and computational thinking skills. Participants will learn how to use the Ready to Code toolkit, a professional development tool consisting of a framework, personas, and resources, from lesson plans to promotional pieces. Finally, the session will include hands-on experience with 3 coding tools--Spheros, Ozobots, and Scratch.
