This is a 1.5 hour hands-on introduction to software development, designed to demystify code and show that learning the basics is easy! Participants will explore how to write code through a series of fun and creative challenges while discovering how coding is a tool that is used in real-world science applications for the creation of simulations and modeling.

This workshop is independently paced and picks up at your skill level. All skill levels are welcome.

Cost is $25 for current Gateway members, $40 for non-members

**Pre-registration is required** Registration forms are available here. Registration is limited. Registration will close when spaces are filled and no later than Dec. 1, 2017.

The Hour of Code™ is a nationwide initiative by Computer Science Education Week and Code.org to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming.

Saturday Investigation Station Activities

Most Saturdays during exhibit seasons, Gateway hosts a drop-in activity in the Investigation Station between 1:00pm and 3:00pm. Click on the calendar link above to see what activity is happening. All activities are included with paid admission and are subject to change.

Museum Without Walls

Gateway Science Museum hosts Museum Without Walls, also known as MWOW, on Wednesday evenings in April and October. This series began in the fall of 2003, long before Gateway Science Museum was completed in 2010, which is how the series got its name. The series presents lectures with topics related to one or more of the exhibits currently on display at Gateway. MWOW lectures are open to all ages. For details about MWOW, click here or check the calendar of events above.

Herbarium Workshops

The Chico State Herbarium continues to offer workshops for the general public and the professional alike. Visit their webpage for a complete list of upcoming programs.
