Crossroads (south base of George C. King bridge)
Ladies Learning Code (LLC) is a national not-for-profit with more than 29 volunteer-led chapters across the country. What started as a desire to provide hands-on, social and collaborative technical opportunities for women has grown into new goal of helping Canadians to become digitally literate.
Code:Mobile is LLC's newest initiative to inspire and educate Canadians to become passionate builders -- not just consumers of technology. It's more than just a computer lab on wheels, Code:Mobile is a cross-Canada journey that brings hands-on, interactive programming opportunities into our communities.
The Code:Mobile will roll into East Village on Saturday, August 27, with a fair-style Scratch workshop for all ages! We invite you to come bring your imagination to life through LittleBits and Google Cardboard.
For those unfamiliar with Scratch, LittleBits and Google Cardboard, here's what you need to know: Scratch is a beginner level programming language used to create interactive stories, games and animation. We'll be working on Scratch to build the foundation of your invention and then realizing your vision through LittleBits (a platform of easy-to-use electronic building blocks for creating inventions large and small) or Google Cardboard (an immersive virtual reality tool).
