Coding in the Library

With the mission to "engage library patrons like never before", it's no wonder that the Nevada State Library has partnered up with local coding course designed  NCLab to deploy free-to-patrons courses in robotics and coding, aimed at kids, teens, and adults. Through hands-on project-based learning, students of all ages and backgrounds develop a strong portfolio of skills they need to succeed in a rapidly changing, technology-focused world. Using a games-based instructional method, NCLab's unique software allows patrons to learn the vital digital language of coding. They’ve developed a method that makes computer science and other disciplines easier to learn for everyone. Each course creates a smooth learning curve that ensures students of all levels can grasp even complex STEM concepts (e.g. while loops, recursive algorithms, rotational Bezier solids, surfaces, shells, etc.).

NCLab is made possible through funding provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Nevada State Library, Archives and Public Records.
