“Family Code Night” is a whole-family event at which kids grades K-5 and their parents do their first hour of computer programming – together! At this special evening of learning and fun, 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 in this very first hour. 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, bring one device for each two attendees. The library has a limited supply of laptops but it is best if you can bring your own. This is a great experience to share with your kids!
