  • During Open Lab, Saturday,  September 7,  1 p.m. to 4 p.m., “You Can Code.” Think coding is hard? Everyone can code. Join us at the workshop to get started. We use Blockly, a drag and drop language to instruct the computer. We will be trying a number of puzzles, mazes and games to explore sequential events, selection and repetition. After, students will be able to access the web pages at home to continue their learning. This workshop is led by Thomas Proffen of ORCSGirls, a nonprofit, to inspire girls in the Oak Ridge area to explore technology, coding and science.  Workshop targeted towards teens but open to all ages.
