Go micro with Sequim Library’s Second Saturday Science session

Second Saturday Science, a program designed to create fun, hands-on opportunities for children ages 7-12 to explore concepts related to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), is back at the Sequim Library in December.

Starting at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 14, youths can join the Hour of Code by working and playing with BBC micro:bits at the library, 630 N. Sequim Ave.

Much like a tiny, pocket-sized computer, the BBC micro:bit encourages children to learn basic coding and programming skills to prepare them for a tech-savvy world.

All materials will be provided.

“Hour of Code is an annual, worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, believing that every student should have the opportunity to learn computer science,” program organizers say. “It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path.”

Registration is required. To register, or for more programs for youth, visit the Sequim Library events calendar at www.nols.org, call the library at 360-683-1161 or email to youth@nols.org.
