Working for Change in Digital Age With CodeSB for Youth at Santa Barbara Library

Interested in initiating change in your community? Interested in coding and computer science?

Participants ages 12-17 are invited to participate in the CodeSB: Community Resources with Computer Science cohort this summer at the Santa Barbara Central Library. CodeSB will run 2-4:30 p.m. on six Wednesdays, July 11-Aug. 15.

CodeSB is a project-based program in which participants work as a team to develop, design, construct and launch a mobile application or website meant to address a topic in their community.

The cohort team will select the topic to address. This program will mimic the experience of an agile development team while encouraging participants to think about how they can use computer science to help create change in their community.
High-beginner to intermediate coding experience is required to participate in CodeSB. For more information and how to register, visit http://bit.ly/SBPLCodeSB. Registration is required.
This initiative is sponsored by Google to promote computer science and computational thinking among youth. CodeSB is a part of ALA’s ongoing Libraries Ready to Code.

Santa Barbara Public Library System is one of 28 libraries selected nationwide to receiving funding for programming and resources to encourage and support underrepresented populations to computer science and computational thinking learning opportunities.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
