Do you have a story to tell? The Google Computer Science First Storytelling club is your chance to bring your stories to life on the computer and share them with others while learning coding concepts such as variables, sequencing and more. Develop characters and dialogue, build intriguing plots, and use computer-generated effects to add excitement, mystery, and interactivity to your stories. In this club, you’ll combine classic elements of storytelling, like characterization, premise, dialogue, and setting, with computer programming. Your audience won’t just read these stories – they’ll experience them.

For grades 3-6. Registration is required. Meets Wednesdays from January 22 through March 11 at 4:30. Please only register if you are able to commit to at least 6 of the 8 sessions.  A New Canaan High School student will be the peer lead for the class with a library staff member present to help.

Google CS Clubs are based on curriculum developed by Google. Each CS First club is based on a real-world theme and offers about 10 hours worth of lessons and activities. The different club themes aim to attract and engage students of varying backgrounds and interests. The curriculum is presented through open-ended videos that allow students to work at their own pace and go in the direction that interests them.
