code {STEAM} 

A middle school age boy sits at a computer designing a video game

Teaching video game design, digital art and storytelling to youth, teens and adults.

Our Vision

Through the umbrella of video game design participants learn not only to code but to think creatively and problem solve. This format that includes code, art, and storytelling offers something for each participant to excel in. The work you see here typically comes from an 8-week course or our summer intensive working, 16 hours over the course of 4 days. 

CodeSTEAM is a collaboration between the Lodi Public Library and Ninja Pandas and is made possible from community donations and grants.
