Early Coding Without Computers

Coding is simply creating step-by-step instructions to follow and early learners are coding everyday when they do things like clean their teeth, get dressed to go outside, or travel from home to child care! In this workshop, we will explore fun ways to introduce young children to coding through stories, dance, cooking, games, nature’s life cycles and treasure hunts without them ever having to go near a computer screen or tablet.
