*CANCELED* Ada's Algorithm: Computer coding

This event has been canceled.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution giving women the right to vote in this country.  This was a HUGE achievement for many generations and all their hard work... and we're going to celebrate all year long!

Do computers think and talk to each other?  To us?  Do YOU speak "computer"? Come out to the park and learn about the women responsible for modern-day computer coding that helped pave the way for how we use the computer today. Computers actually DO have their own language in which we try to understand. Through a unique hands-on activity with the ranger, you will create your own computer message that explains this concept!
