School kids have the day off Sept. 6 but here’s a coding event you can take them to

Code Differently's one day Pop-Up Youth Coding Experience is all about videogame development. Learning how to build games is better than just playing them.

Kids aren't just game consumers — they can learn to make them, too.

There are primary elections Sept. 6 and all Delaware public schools will have a day off.

That doesn’t mean the kids get a free day of nothing but playing video games — instead, they can learn how to code games themselves at Code Differently’s one day Pop-Up Youth Coding Experience.

Going to the Pop Up on September 6th? Yes! Bet! 🚨 Delaware public schools are closed on September 6th. Registration for the Code Differently Pop Up at Theatre N in Wilmington is Open! Limited spots available. Sign up today at https://bit.ly/2BRvXqv. #codedifferently #coding #gaming #technology #kidscoding #delaware

After you vote, drop the kiddos off at Theatre N at 9 a.m. for a full day of game development — half the day spent on coding, the other half spent gaming on the big screen. No prior coding experience is necessary, and kids with coding experience will be grouped together so they’re not just rehashing the basics.

The all-day pop-up costs $75, which includes lunch. The pop-up ends at 4 p.m.

This will be Code Differently’s second pop-up event since launching in July with a mission to “introduce and elevate information technology through hands-on practical instruction.”
