Mesa, AZ –Mesa Main Library is starting up a Code Club that will meet every Thursday. Part of the Code Club World based in the U.K.  Code Club will teach children eight to 18 how to write code. The first meeting is on Thursday, Sept. 12 from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Main Library, 64 E. First St., in the computer training room on the second floor.
 
“Learning to code is an important skill now that we are living in a digital age,” Co-Founder, Code Club World, Clare Sutcliffe said.  “It’s not just enough for children to know how to use technology. They should know how it works too. Learning to code doesn’t only mean you can become a developer but it also strengthens problem solving skills and logical thinking by supporting academic subjects such as science, math and technology.”
 
Mesa’s Code Club is free and no computer or coding experience is required. Different projects will be offered where participants will learn how to program computer games, animations and websites.  The Mesa Code Club is a great opportunity to learn how programs are created while having fun doing it.
 
Registration is required. To register, visit www.events.mesalibrary.org. Registration ends Thursday, Sept. 12 at 3 p.m.
 
For more information about the Code Club, call the Mesa Library at (480) 644-3100 or visit www.codeclubworld.org or https://www.codeclub.org.uk for additional information.
