Dragon Tag Programming Club starts October 22

Dragon Tag Programming Club starts Monday, October 22
as part of Research Fellows Project of Noah
Alternate Mondays 2:45-4:00
Open to 3rd-6th grade
Begins Oct. 22

Limited to 18 participantssign up now!

Welcome to the Dragon Tag Programming Club.  We are convinced that learning to program is the best way for you to become ready for the best-paying, most challenging, and most rewarding jobs of the future. The reality is that schools, at least in the near future, are not well equipped to help you get ready.  It is up to you (with the help of your parents) to do the work afterschool, during summers, even weekends. You won’t regret it. Each step on the path you take gets you in shape to be an extraordinary contributor to a future that will be bright for those who learn to code!

When you enter the club, we will help you get started with Code.org.  Your first quest will be to complete Courses one and two of Computer Science Fundamentals on Code.org.

When you have completed course two, we invite you to explore the first step in a new journey.  Before you choose your path, consider where you want to eventually go! We have set out several options and encourage you to be courageous and work hard.

+ Game Design
+ Mobile App Design
+ Front End Web Developer
+ Back End Web Developer
+ Robotics
+ Cyber Security
+ Data Analytics and Supercomputing

We will meet at 2:50 to 4:00 pm on alternate Mondays of each month in the Media Lab beginning October 22.  A reminder will be sent home using Remind.

Baden Academy Authors will be featured at the Beaver County BookFest Sept. 8

Beaver County BookFest 2018

Join Baden Academy authors at the Beaver County BookFest, Saturday, September 8, anytime between 9 am and 4 pm.  Come find us in the big tent, but don’t forget to look for the free children’s activities.

We are so proud of all of our authors!  Come join us.

Research Fellow authors create books with leading scientists, academics, and professionals about  21st century scientific, engineering, and computational discoveries they are passionate about. We have learned the best collaborations come when students tell real-world stories about scientists, researchers, and entrepreneurs working at the cutting edge of modern technology. Once the books are written, fellows explore e-publishing, e-commerce and merchandising. Examples include:

                              screen-shot-2016-09-12-at-5-49-34-pm   A Colorful Kindergarten by Kelli Keriotis   The ABC's of Veggies by Kate Huoy   King Penguins of the Falkland Islands    http://static.lulu.com/browse/product_thumbnail.php?productId=21647058&resolution=320       The Little Blue Penguins of North Sydney Harbour   Dolly the Dolphin by Isabella Kelm       Hamster Fun Facts by Veronica Judt and Kamryn Vilscek       Storm Stories by Baden Academy 4th Grade Virtual Worlds 2014   Totem Tales by Finniotis Barackage

Keep your eye out for your Carrie Kennedy’s booth at the BookFest celebrating her Panorama: An Introduction to Classical Mythology book.
