"Family Code Night" is a whole-school, whole-family MPTS event for kids grades K-5 and their parents. You'll play in parent-child teams to complete fun Code.org puzzles and challenges at your own pace, and learn core concepts in coding. Afterwards, you'll go home with a special "Code On at Home" guide to continue coding puzzles, learning and fun at home. No coding experience needed, laptops available if needed, a great experience to share with your kids!
5:30pm - 7:15pm
The program is free, but space is limited, so please sign up today!
