With the mission to "engage library patrons like never before", it's no wonder that the Nevada State Library has partnered with local coding course NCLab to deploy courses in robotics and coding aimed at kids, teens, and adults. Through hands-on project-based learning, students of all ages and backgrounds develop a strong portfolio of skills they need to succeed in a rapidly changing, technology-focused world. Using a games-based instructional method, NCLab's unique software allows patrons to learn the vital digital language of coding. They’ve developed a method that makes computer science and other disciplines easier to learn for everyone.
To help libraries get the most benefit from NCLab, they created two portals for libraries:
The NCLab Nevada Library Portal for library staff can be accessed here You will find all the information you need to implement NCLab courses as part of your online catalog, as a focus for library clubs, or as training for people looking for new careers.
NCLab created a portal for patrons that you can add to your library website using this link: https://nclab.com/patrons-nv/
To set up an account for your library, contact Sheila Crawford Bunch (NCLab) at firstname.lastname@example.org, 775-303-6075.
For questions at the state level, please contact Norma Fowler (Nevada State Archives, Library and Public Records) at email@example.com, 775-684-3407.
Printed postcards to hand out to library patrons are available from the Nevada State Library, Archives and Public Records. Please contact Norma Fowler if you would like a box of cards sent to your branch.
NCLab is made possible through funding provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Nevada State Library, Archives and Public Records.
