Come to the Mountain House Library and learn coding without a computer! This program is designed to help children as young as 5 begin to think like a programmer. Children will guide their Lego figure through a maze according to simple step-by-step commands they lay out ahead of "run time."  Older children who know a bit more about coding can challenge themselves to code their way out of a maze with more involved coding concepts such as "for loops," "while loops", "if statements," and random number generators (aka dice!)
