 Saturdays, 3 p.m. until 5 p.m., “Blount County Nerd Group.” Students can learn the basic principles of computer programming, also known as coding. By participating in the newly-formed Blount County Nerd Group, students seventh grade and up can learn skills such as making simple games, developing professional websites and creating mobile apps. Kaleb Davenport and Garrett Smith will teach coding skills every Saturday from 3 until 5 p.m. throughout the rest of the year at the Blount County Public Library. Experienced web developers, Davenport and Smith are students at local high schools who have worked very hard to learn about many different technologies and are excited to teach the group. Participating students are encouraged to bring their own technologies including a laptop. However, students who do not have adequate technology will be provided a laptop by the library when necessary. Power outlets and internet ports will be provided, so students will be able to bring their laptops even if the batteries are old and do not function well. In the constantly changing job market, coding is a huge advantage for students and job seekers. At this library program, be prepared to learn and have fun. The group will meet in the Board Room.
