Hour of Code with The Bakken Museum

  • The Bakken Museum 3537 Zenith avenue south Minneapolis, MN 55416 (map)

From the website: During the week of December 7th-13th, is hosting its Hour of Code initiative, encouraging everyone to spend one hour try to code. As  more and more of the objects that we use and surrounds us in our daily lives is powered by code and the need for coders is growing faster than the supply. Not only can code be the road to a great job, but it is a great tool for personal expression. With the ever growing  presence of programmed objects in our lives why not learn to control your environment with code!

At The Bakken during our Hour of Code drop in workshops we have two opportunities for you to try your had at code.

[Coding LEGO Robots] 1) Use code to control a LEGO robot and help it navigate a maze.
2) Learn to program an Arduino microcontroller and control lights and sound.

We will have educators and volunteers to help you break down the pieces and help introduce some of the key ideas you will need to code.

The cost of activities is included with museum admission.
