Middle school children looking for something different to do over spring break might consider building a website.
The Hamburg Public Library is offering a free coding workshop to help to introduce Western New York youth to the world of web and software development and skills they will need for the growing innovation economy.
The Hamburg Public Library Coding Camp Powered by AT&T will take place from 2 to 4 p.m. April 10-13 at the library, 102 S. Buffalo St., and is open to children from 11 to 14.
Children can learn how to write code and build a website under the instruction of various mentors. The coding camp is free, but is limited to 25 students total. Laptops are provided for the first 20 campers. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops if possible. To register, call 649-4415.
“Our economy continues to transform at a robust pace – requiring a workforce with a focus on technological education and digital literacy - and STEM and coding opportunities like this one are vital to ensure that the students of today are prepared for the global economy of tomorrow," said Benjamin Roberts, director of public affairs at AT&T.
