CSED Week: Coding with Processing by Jeff Branson

Join BLDG 61 in welcoming Sparkfun electronics superstar Jeff Branson. Jeff will be teaching Processing, a graphic and animation code that plays well with DIY hardware like Sparkfun's Redboard (a.k.a. Arduino). No prior coding experience is required, but recommended. BLDG 61 will provide laptops though you are encouraged to download and install Processing for free on your own device at: https://processing.org/

Ages 10+ with adult supervision for students under 12. Space is limited, please register to confirm your spot.

All attendees must fill out our Acknowledgement of Risk and Release Form prior to use of makerspace.

Generously sponsored by the Boulder Library Foundation.

This event is part of Boulder Computer Science Education Week, December 1-8, 2018.

Create apps. Code robots. Design stories. Explore new technologies, new programming languages and environments, meet robots, try coding, engage with problem solving and gadgets. Meet extraordinary people of all ages doing amazing things during Boulder CSED Week.

Boulder CSED = free Computer Science Education programs for everyone at your library, school and tech partner organizations.

We have code at our fingertips as we drive our cars, check the news on a laptop, or message a friend with our cell phones. Boulder CSED Week invites learners of all ages (adults, school aged kids, and even pre-schoolers) to consider code and create with it! Experience robots, and control them with code, make a block based program or write out coded instructions, learn how to code a new device or make an app, visit with a robot at story time, and more! All of Boulder CSED Week’s program are free and open to the public. Programs are hosted by local experts, educators, and makers, and inspiring technologies offer pathways for code-learners of all levels of experience. Some programs ask for pre-registration. Join us - create with code for this year’s Boulder CSED week!


Volunteer. Present. Build, test, experiment. Solve tricky bugs. Be a code creator!
