Your help could further MMSA’s vision of a brighter STEM future for the State of Maine and the nation. Today, I ask you to support MMSA and become a part of the movement to support exciting new ways for our youth to learn about science, technology, engineering, and math.
At Family Code Nights, parents pair up with their children to do their first hour of coding, together. The effect is extraordinary: great fun, inspiration – plus the personal engagement of happy, motivated parents, a unique and largely untapped force in K-6 computer science education. The community shares this delightful evening experience and is left eager for more, at school and at home.
Family participation is a simple but profound innovation in this event – it changes the trajectory of a child’s computer-science learning, and the family’s appreciation and support for that learning. The result is a powerfully mobilized community and new momentum and direction to drive future computer science learning.
Family Code Night is perfect for libraries, schools, homeschool co-ops, afterschool programs and extracurricular groups such as scouts and 4-H. You don’t need to be a computer whiz to run one of these inspiring events. If you’d like to host a Family Code Night in your community, visit our host page to see what it’s all about!
