Marin County kids and parents are warmly invited to “Hour of Code Night,” a delightful full-participation evening of computer science for kids K-8 AND their parents! If you came last year, come again, this time to enjoy your choice of three different experiences for parents & kids learning together:
Fun With Computers (grades K-2): Perfect for Kindergarten, first-, and second-grade digital explorers! For kids still learning reading and keyboard skills, this first programming experience includes coding and computer puzzles.
Hour of Code (grades 2-7): A delightful, self-paced introduction to computer programming for kids and parents together. No previous tech background required.
Intro to Scratch (grades 3-8, advanced): For more technically experienced kids and their parents, in this session you'll start to learn Scratch, and create your first app in this wildly popular programming language from MIT.
Hour of Code Night II at the Marin County Office of Education will be held Wednesday, February 25, from 6:00 to 7:15pm. You'll enjoy an hour of full-contact immersion in computer science and coding, with coaches on hand for this great self-paced program. Please bring your own laptop, or borrow one on-site from MCOE. The program is free, but space is limited, so register for free now. You'll be coding with your kids in no time!
Volunteers Needed! Parents and kids with tech experience, or kids who have done an Hour Of Code Night or Scratch, are encouraged to register as coaches and volunteers. We'll send you an advance prep memo and we'll meet up a few minutes early for orientation.
Hour of Code Night is co-sponsored by MCOE and MV GATE, the parent organization for computer science and other advanced learning programs for Marin kids and schools. Learn more at www.marinschools.org and www.mvgate.org.
