Learn Coding, 3D Modeling, and Programming with NCLab!
Did you know that you can learn these skills through your local Nevada library? You can check out an NCLab course just like you would check out a book. It’s simple!
- Ask your library branch for an NCLab username and password.
- Go to nclab.com, log in with your username and password, and start learning! You will see four courses that build programming and computer-aided design skills, even if you are a complete beginner.
Think of these as life skills for the digital world. Even if you don’t go on to programming and CAD work yourself, this knowledge will help you understand the automation and digitalization revolution in manufacturing, agriculture, mining, hospitality, health, logistics, research, services, and so much more.
Want to learn as a group? Ask your library branch about the possibilities of meeting online, or when available, at the library itself.
