Create unique sounds and music while learning computer programming as well.
Starting at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 6, in the downtown library, kids taking part in Coding: Sonic Pi will start using programming skills to make music.
Sonic Pi makes it easy to code, compose and perform music and mimic synthesizer and other sounds. Start programming your own songs and be DJing in no time. Registration is expected to ensure enough computers are available for everyone.
“We hope kids will be excited about this opportunity to learn about coding,” said Allison McLean, head of the library’s Young People’s Services.
In addition to learning coding and exploring computer science, students will be able to learn more about how technology is used to make their favorite music.
Those signing up do not need any prior computer experience.
