Door County 4-H is helping introduce youth to one of the most in-demand skills in the country when it hosts its first STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Manufacturing) Saturday event next week. According to BusinessInsider.com, coding and programming jobs are growing 12 percent faster than the market average. During the Code Your World event, kids will be able to learn about the skill to animate their name on a computer screen. Door County 4-H educator Dawn Vandevoort says the STEM Saturday events are a great way to expose kids to different things.
“Code Your World” will take place at the Door County Library from 2-3 p.m. on October 6th. You can learn more about the event by visiting this story online.
