Dungeons & Dragons

Tuesday, December 7 (4:00 PM - 6:30 PM)
Location: Virtual Library
Room: Online

Attention 12-16yr olds --  Adventure awaits!

A friendly introduction to Dungeons & Dragons for players of all experience levels, led by an experienced player. Held every Tuesday from 4-6:30pm. Our Campaign lasts from September 21st to December 7th - for a total of 12 sessions. Because this game relies upon the players to move forward, please make sure you can attend the majority of the sessions before you sign up (we completely understand when things like dentist appointments and such crop up, we know you have lives).

Form a party, hunt for ancient treasures, and use your wits, magic, or brute force to battle kobolds, dragons, and more. Dungeons & Dragons is a game of adventure, imagination and near-limitless possibilities. If you've been curious but unsure how to start, it's time to roll the dice and join this campaign. An experienced D&Der will guide you, and all the necessary materials & manuals will be provided.

Parents: Please be prepared to briefly meet our volunteer who leads the program. Zoom Link will be emailed the day of the event  - September 21st please register in advance so that we know who and how many to expect, Thank you!

Canceled JavaScript Coding

Thursday, December 9 (3:00 PM - 4:00 PM)
Location: Virtual Library
Room: Online

This program will follow the curriculum from Khan Academy called “Intro to JS: Drawing & Animation”. It covers fundamental ideas of computer science, and helps students learn one of the most popular programming languages right now, JavaScript. The curriculum has 18 modules, each with a few videos, short readings, and hands-on activities. Notable modules include Drawing Basics, Variables, Functions, Looping, and Objects. Students are free to work at their own pace; for students who finish quickly, an advanced Khan Academy course is available. No prior programming experience is required.

About the instructor: Saashin is a local high school student. He's always been passionate about computer programming and technology. His first experience with coding was in 4th Grade, when he completed the introductory Khan Academy course on JavaScript. Since then, he's completed online courses in Python, HTML/CSS and JavaScript from University of Michigan, UC Davis and Hong Kong Institute of Technology. He's volunteered with CodeCombat and is currently at doing a internship with a local company.
