For The Kids: Pop-Up Learning Labs

Does your kid know it all? No matter how old we get, there’s always something new to learn. 

Toronto Public Library’s Pop-Up Learning Labs travel to different branches to bring new and emerging technology to your community through free, staff-led workshops. 

There are a few happening soon that caught our eye:

Coding for Kids with Scratch! Scratch is a free programming language to make games, movies and animations. In this workshop, they’ll cover some of the basics of Scratch and build a simple game. Learn about the Scratch programming language and editor in this fun workshop for kids aged 10 and up. Runs on Tuesday August 1st from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Humber Bay (200 Park Lawn Rd.)
