STEM kids at Legacy Place

September was Coding Month, and the Jefferson STEAM kids coded alongside the Legacy residents.

Coding, according to Jefferson librarians, teaches “critical thinking and thinking in steps.” Code is built step-by-step, and computers perform the coded actions in the order they are input. Therefore, thinking critically about the necessary steps to complete an action and breaking them down into a first, second, next, last format. Such a format is important to common sense thinking that kids can put to use in their futures, although the librarians believe that “coding’s really good for anyone, I think.”

The STEAM kids were coding Spheros.
