Fun and gamified coding lessons for kids

Know a child or teen who wants to learn how to code? Butler Area Public Library provides free access to Fiero Code, a self-paced learn-to-code software program for kids ages 8-18.

 

Through fun and engaging tutorials and projects, Fiero Code teaches kids coding languages ― such as HTML, Python and JavaScript ― that they can use to build their own websites, video games, apps and more.

 

Fiero Code also includes a portfolio feature for coders to display their work, and a “Share with Parents” feature for them to share their projects with family and friends.
