  NC 'Family Code Night' plans coming soon

On Oct. 21, the Family Code Night plans for every elementary school in North Carolina will be unveiled at the "NC Nights" live launch from Salt Lake City, Utah, during the National Computer Science for All Summit, as the program website goes public for families and educators throughout North Carolina. Family Code Night has been recognized with an invitation to the White House and will be featured on the front page of The New York Times. Hosting a Family Code Night is within the capability of any school, no coding experience is required, and all materials are provided. It is an ideal step a school can take to advance K-5 family engagement and computer science learning. NC STEM is one of the lead partners in the Family Code Night effort in North Carolina. View the Event Flyer for details. Principals and educators - don’t be left out! Visit NCNights.org, download the Event Kit, schedule a Family Code Night any time this year, and put your school on "The Map" by Oct. 21!
