Basic Computer Lessons Offered to Youth by MSU Macomb County Extension – Macomb Daily
Michigan State University Macomb County’s Cooperative Extension Service offers a basic computer course for young people during the summer, due to the growing demand for high-paying computer jobs.
Young people aged 12 to 16 can take advantage of a free program called 4-H Clovers CODE (Creating Opportunities Designed for Everyone) from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on July 19, 20 and 21 at the Cairns Community Center, 58 Orchard St . , at Mount Clemens.
The free program will introduce the basic components of computer science and encourage participants to continue their studies in computer science in the future, according to officials. Instructors will use Apple iPads, other equipment and the Anyone Can Code curriculum to create an engaging educational experience for exploring basic coding languages and experimenting with robotics, officials said. No coding experience is required for participants. Skills such as leadership and communication are also included in the activities, according to a statement.
Interested persons should register in advance at events.anr.msu.edu/cloverscode/. Those interested in learning more about 4-H Clovers CODE sessions can contact Macomb County MSU Extension AmeriCorps member Sienna Prideaux at [email protected]
