Kids can learn 'power of coding' during Google Fiber event

Posted February 12

Google Fiber

Kids ages 8 to 14 are invited to the Raleigh Google Fiber Space for an interactive workshop where kids can learn about coding and the Internet.

Online RSVP is required for the program, which is 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m., Feb. 18, at the space at 518 W. Jones St. near downtown Raleigh.

Here's a description about what kids will do from the RSVP page:

"Through hands-on activities and Google tools, they’ll explore their interests and learn how technology shapes the world around them, as they set out to become creators of their own. Each attendee will get to participate in one of the following stations:

Music: Kids can discover how technology and code play a role in music. They’ll take part in a hands-on experience that gives them the chance to build and play digitally connected instruments made from everyday objects.

Animation: Kids can discover how new tools and technology are allowing people to tell amazing stories without Hollywood budgets. They’ll get to make their own short film using technology and stop-motion animation."

It's free!

    I am very interested in the power of coding event. When I clicked on the link for the RSVP, I couldn't find anyplace to sign up. Did I miss something?
