Computers, tablets, smartphones, video games, apps, oh my! As technology plays such an important role in our lives, learning basic computer programming isn’t just a smart idea, it’s an essential skill for grown-ups and children alike.

Join us for Family Code Night – a fun, interactive family-school event for kids (grades K-5) and their parents or guardians to experience computer programming for the first time – together! Playing in teams to complete puzzles and challenges at their own pace, families learn foundations of coding in just one hour. Instead of watching screens, parents and kids will learn to create what’s on their screens!

Fun & Memorable Family Screen Time!

  • A great experience to share with your kids grades K-5
  • No coding experience needed
  • Bring your own laptop & earbuds, or use ours
  • This is a family activity, no child drop-offs
  • Bonus: Everyone goes home with a special “Code On at Home” guide with engaging activities for continued learning

Volunteers Welcome! Parents & kids with tech experience, or kids who have participated in Hour of Code are encouraged to sign up as volunteer coaches, using the link above. We’ll gather 15 minutes early for orientation.
