Family Code Night is a whole-school, whole-family event at which kids in 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. Laptops will be available. It's a great experience to share with your kids! 

Only 20 spots (10 children in grades K-5,  each accompanied to one parent) are available at each Family Code Night, so sign up soon! To register, contact Joseph Morra jmorra@provcomlib.org at Olneyville, Kelly rocyouth@provcomlib.org at Rochambeau and Amy VanderWeele
avanderweele@provcomlib.org at South Providence. 

PCL's Family Code Night events are part of a statewide initiative designed to bring family coding events to several diverse Rhode Island communities through public libraries. They are made possible by a collaboration between the University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Library and Information Studies and a national intiative, FamilyCodeNight.org and is funded by a seed grant from Infosys Foundation USA.
