Secret Code I
Presentation Site
We interact with them every day and everywhere. We get annoyed when they aren't fast enough and frantic when they don't work. We order our Pizza and our clothing on them, pay our bills, reserve library books and make medical appointments. They can tuck into our pockets and sit on our laps. They are frequently found in bed with our spouses. And yet, many of us have no idea how they work.
The key is in the secret code! Participants in this class will investigate and crack this secret code. As you progress, you will compose and exchange cryptic messages with your fellow cryptologists.
Finally, the clandestine location of a boundless treasure will be revealed. You and your fellows will have the key to a location where a treasure trove of coding adventures can be found. The wealth is so vast you will be able to share with your family, your students and other teachers. Don’t Miss Out! Secret Decoder Key included!

Coding 4 Zombies
Presentation Site
Have you ever wondered why Zombies walk the way they do? Well, somebody has to teach these walking dead to avoid hazards and walk with the dignity every Zombie desires. After all, their fashion sense and personal hygiene are beyond help.
Then there are the birds! They are angry. The birds are intent on pursuing those evil piggies. You can help. With a little work, you’ll teach those birds to avoid the TNT and get their birdie babies back home. All it takes is following and giving instructions. As teachers, you are already expert at that.
This class will introduce coding and the Hour Of Code. The Hour Of Code Website features brief statements from people like Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and the inventors of Zynga and DropBox. Lesson plans, interactive coding games, and support materials are free, fun and educational. Coding teaches people to pause and think.
Take a break and challenge yourself to get those Zombies safely home! Certificates of Zombification will be awarded to all participants.
