On June 15, from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Junior High School, the district is hosting its second annual K-5 Night of Coding. During the evening, students will work together with their parents exploring computer science and working together to complete online coding puzzles.

“Last year, both students and parents had a lot of fun participating in unplugged activities and working with robots,” said Scott Payne, assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction. 

The evening will begin with a presentation in the auditorium. Each student will receive a folder that will include a schedule prepared for their age group. At various times in the evening, each student will have time to see a robot demonstration, engage in an unplugged activity and use the computer to experience the fun of coding. 

This event is organized by Theresa Taplin, K-12 math curriculum specialist; Harry Theo, K-8 science coordinator; and Stephanie Nocerino, director of K-12 student data and instructional technology, along with parent volunteer Jennifer O’Dougherty.  

The event is a great opportunity to spend quality time learning and exploring computer science.
