Through programming, of course!
Ruby is an open-source coding language that allows us to speak to our computers through step-by-step instructions, and then be able to see (or hear!) the computer’s response. Ruby can be used to communicate anything from a simple mathematical equation, to an interactive game. We will use repl.it, a free, cloud coding environment, to make our programs come to life. Kids Learning Code is excited to host this creative workshop for beginners, which will cover essential terms in the Ruby language such as: integers, strings, and variables – all while focusing on how an everyday computer operates and understands input. Learning Ruby will allow the girl in your life to create games and solve puzzles in a fun and engaging way, all while generating endless opportunities to use a computer as a creative outlet! Each Programming with Ruby workshop has the same flow, but different activities. Come and create new programs every time!
