Bitbox Coding is a method for teaching people to code real applications (“apps”) to be used on devices, usually mobile phones and tablets. This educational activity at the Arts and Science Center uses bitbox coding for multiple arts and academic areas. Even children who do not one day become computer programmers can benefit from the logical and analytical thinking skills stimulated by programming.
The Arts and Science Center for Southeast Arkansas offers 2nd Saturday Family FunDay once a month to give children the opportunity in hands-on arts and science. The arts may be fine or performing and may include visual arts, music, theater, or dance.
The 2nd Saturday science project topics also run the gamut. Some are more directly related to an academic science topic while others are applied and venture into a technological area.
Second Saturday Family FunDay activities complement a current art or science exhibit at the Center. Parents and guardians who bring participants are welcome to stay for the fun.
