DeKALB – Want to make your own music? Learn how to build a band on a computer using Scratch, a fun way to learn computer coding, at 1 p.m. Monday during the Mighty Makers at the DeKalb Public Library.
The group will learn some basic coding, including loops and conditional statements, while having fun adding instruments to their own band. Familiarity with computers is required, but no coding experience in necessary.
The program will be taught at the internet computers in the Youth Services department.
