Saturday Series: Computer Crafting for Kids with Linda Liukas (ages 6–12)

Sat February 24 @ 11 h 00 - 12 h 00

Meet author Linda Liukas and create your own paper computer.

If computer code is the Lego block of our time—a tool of creation—how do we teach curiosity, joy, and wonder to our kids? Try this workshop on crafts, computers and creativity led by Hello Ruby founder Linda Liukas

The activity is entirely in English, and no translation will be provided. All participants must be able to understand and speak English in order to participate in the program. Children between the ages 6–12 may participate in Library programs on their own, while their chaperone remains inside the Library.


About Linda Liukas: Linda Liukas is the author of the Hello Ruby books on coding for kids. From Helsinki, Finland, she brings a playful Nordic perspective to the sometimes serious world of computer science. Translated into nearly 40 languages, this children’s picture book series asks: What else is there to technology education than “Learn to code”? Linda is currently building a playground to Helsinki where you can learn about how computers work without a single screen.

Important information: This event is for Library members, and advance registration is required. Caregivers are expected to familiarize themselves with the Library Policy for Children and the Rules and Code of Conduct so that we can provide a pleasant library environment for all patrons. Questions about collections and programs for children and teens can be sent to the Library’s Children and Teens Services Manager, Celeste Rhoads: celeste@americanlibraryinparis.org.
