Spaces for each session are limited and reservations are on a first-come first-served basis, so we do ask that parents please be mindful and courteous to attend (or make sure to cancel as needed) the session they are reserving, in order for us to accommodate as many interested students as we can. 

*Times/locations/availability are subject to change and Quincy Coders reserves the right to cancel or modify sessions at any time as necessary, including as a result of inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

SCRATCH is a web-based program developed by MIT Media Lab. It is a high-level, block-based visual programming language used as an educational tool to introduce children to coding (suitable for ages 8-14).  While the block-like interface makes it easier to translate logic into instructions ("code"), the possibilities to be creative can fall anywhere from simple to advanced programs.

TINKERCAD by Autodesk is a web-based CAD tool (computer aided design) for 3D digital design/modeling of physical objects through the use of geometric construction. It also introduces children to circuit simulation, where code can be created by using blocks or text. Ideal for young creative designers or those who want to learn more about programming and electronics (suitable for ages 8-14).
