Additional Information


This series was aimed at a 9 to 11 year old audience in Ontario, Canada (originally a somewhat older audience was expected, and this was our first time doing workshops for kids, so you’ll notice a shift in the presentation towards accommodating the younger members of the group), and their parents. Some references may not apply elsewhere (the US-style keyboard in the copy-paste handout, for instance, would have be updated if the series were to be used in a region with a different standard keyboard).
