5. Give the kids a lesson in computer coding basics at Unplugged Coding: Programming Present Wrapping (Elementary) from 1 to 2 p.m. Saturday at the DeKalb Public Library, 309 Oak St. in downtown DeKalb.

The workshop is for students in grades 2-5.

Kids don’t need computers to learn coding basics. Led by volunteers from the Society of Women Engineers, kids will learn how computers process instructions by creating a set of instructions for how to wrap a gift. Kids learn by trial and error, and see how vague instructions can result in unexpected outcomes. At the end, kids will see an example of a basic program built in Scratch that they can try at home.

For information, call 815-756-9568, ext. 3350, email theresaw@dkpl.org, or visit dkpl.org.
