(Nacogdoches, TX) – Each week the Nacogdoches Public Library offers free coding and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) programs for children and teens. Coderdojo is a guided workshop into the world of coding. Children ages 8-17 years can explore a variety of coding programs. Coderdojo is offered every Wednesday at 4:30 pm.
STEAM 4 Kids is offered each Thursday night at 5:30 pm for children ages 8-11 years. With the receipt of a grant from Dollar General and Association of Library Services to Children (ALSC), the library has purchased STEAM kits to use in the weekly programs. Program kits include topics, such as, magnets, weather, insects, electricity, robots, art projects and more. For those that cannot attend a STEAM program, STEAM backpacks will soon be available for families to check out.
All library programs are free, but do require registration to ensure we have enough supplies.
Registration may be done in person, by calling 559-2970 or online at www.ci.nacogdoches.tx.us/library.
