Wednesday, June 29, 2016
6:00pm-7:00pm
Computer Center, Newton Free Library 330 Homer Street

CodeCampKidz is sponsoring an introductory coding class at the Newton Free Library that will take kids with no experience coding and “work toward building skills and self-confidence by enabling them to create their own basic app pages with text, graphics, videos, and more.”

 

Over the course of four weeks throughout July, the students will meet once a week and use an eLearning platform to create projects and build apps. “By the end, students will have developed a coding space in which to work, and host pages for public display, if they so choose.”

7:00pm-9:00pm
Terry O'Reilly's Irish Pub 45 Union Street

On Wednesday, June 28, Mayor Setti Warren will host the 5th annual Pan-Mass Challenge Newton Riders Reception.

 

The Pan-Mass Challenge, founded in 1980, is an annual bike-a-thon that raises more money for charity than any other athletic charity event. In the 37 years since philanthropist Billy Starr founded the organization, the PMC has raised $500 million for adult and pediatric care at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through the Jimmy Fund. The challenge itself will take place on August 6 and 7, where cyclists will bike up to 192 miles with the goal of raising $46 million. The reception aims to raise awareness for the challenge and thank more than 170 riders who live in Newton.
