The University of Waterloo Stratford Campus and the Stratford Public Library are teaming up to inspire youth to be imaginative content creators. Bridging the gap between the physical and digital worlds, Code-A-Character will provide students with a unique learning experience by enhancing literacy and helping them learn skills needed for the digital age.
Participants will select a book to read, and, working in pairs, will decide on a character they wish to explore through design. The Library will lead sessions in exploring the chosen texts and visioning the design of the characters. University Staff will then lead tutorials in learning Processing, an open source coding software, and will coach the participants in turning their design into a digital product.
