Family Code Night

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


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!
