Engaging Education for an Evolving World

We deliver foundational skills to young learners in playful ways.


Code on the Road : Summer 2023

We are bringing coding to six rural Idaho libraries, along with Professional Development opportunities.

Hey librarians – find out how to host your own sessions!

Did you know?

It is important for students to begin learning computer science early on.

Watch a short video about Scratch, our primary teaching method:

I wish the classes could be longer, I love coding!

We use various tools to introduce computer science and coding to students!

Our innovative approach ignites a passion for learning in students while building essential competence for the 21st century.

So what the heck is STEAM?

STEAM is STEM with heart!

STEM  (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)  describes not only a core group of subjects, but also a hands-on approach to learning that values real world applications over abstract knowledge.

Add Art to the mix, and you’ve got STEAM.  

Art brings imagination and play  to all of the components of STEM.  It also underscores the creative thinking skills that apply to each of the disciplines.

Benefits of Code on the Road

Benefits to Participating Youth and Families

Code on the Road will foster emotional learning by providing students with a safe and supportive environment. We leverage the welcoming spaces of local community libraries trusted by attending families. 

Students can build confidence and resilience by tackling new challenges and overcoming obstacles in their coding projects. The perseverance acquired during these activities strengthens learning in many subjects, including mathematics and language skills. 

Code.org has highlighted six studies to show that studying computer science helps students outperform in school and college in the LinkedIn article CS helps students outperform in school, college, and workplace

Moreover, coding classes will allow students to explore their interests and passions via their projects, which can contribute to a sense of purpose and identity.

Professional Development for Librarians

Our summer program immediately benefits librarians/support staff as they participate in coding activities via informal professional development (PD). Each library has agreed to provide support during the events, which are specific opportunities to learn by doing, with the assurance that we’re there as subject matter experts. 

Multiple weekly sessions reinforce the knowledge gained by each library’s employees.This hands-on PD enables the local teams serving their community to host future STEM coding events more confidently.

We also view these events and the content material as the basis for a lasting partnership with each library as they share resources (event room, Wi-Fi/internet, laptops/Chromebooks) and, most importantly, their time.


Content for Librarians and Educators

Panucation will create and deliver instructional videos and a remix of content based on Getting Unstuck’s modules 1 (When Clicked) and 2 (Parallelism.) 

The nature of this pilot program allows us to revise the instructional content over the summer.  The resulting material will be a long-term public resource available to librarians and educators.

The general release of content is planned for September 2023.

Class : Mars Pioneer


Students use block code to build an interplanetary story and game. Multi-themed projects include elements of storytelling, art, animation, music, and game design all in one. Projects emphasize creativity by encouraging students to build their unique stories each day.

Intermediate Level course is suitable for students familiar with block coding.

Class Levels:  Intro for Ages 7-12, Intermediate for Ages 9-12 Prerequisite for Intermediate: My First Intro to Coding! or previous course

1. Design Your Journey

Tell your story. Who’s going, create/draw your ship, prepare Perseverance for launch.

2. Launch & Transit

 Animating departure from Earth and through space. Is there an imposter on board?!

3: Land & Explore

Create a game to land on target. Explore and decide what (or who) you’ll find.

4: Drone Time

Launch the drone, Ingenuity, and create your scrolling background effect as it flies.

5: Should I stay or should I go?

How does your story end, or does it continue to the next chapter?

Learning Outcomes
  • Learn to connect online, screen share, use chat to communicate with Coach and fellow students (on-line collaboration via Zoom)
  • Learn fundamentals of computer science using Scratch
  • Multi-day projects include integrated elements of storytelling, art, animation, music, and game design.

For 4th to 7th grade classes, there are additional learning outcomes:

  • Students add depth to their creations with additional project coding.
  • Intermediate level classes cover material faster to allow for more coding depth to projects
