This program is more than just learning website design, it is a chance for teens to learn life lessons in the process. We invite you to put your creative cap on and learn how to build a better world through coding at the Dickinson Public Library.

Coding As Empowerment | Chris Bolton | TEDxYouth@Granville
In this rapidly developing technological world we live in today, there are as many hidden dangers as there are hidden gems. Through sharing a personal story of how he became interested in technology and software development, Chris Bolton teaches youth the importance of understanding coding how it can be used to innovate.
The Art of Code | Zach Latta | TEDxYouth@Tallinn
"I believe, if we continue down the path we're currently on, yes, we can teach every young person to code. But I also think, that we're going to teach them that coding is something that's learned through memorization and that coding is something where there's one right answer." Zach offers a new perspective.
