Family Code Night - Success!
Terri Creef

Check out the highlights from the Family Code Night at MES!

Manteo Elementary School held it's first ever Family Code Night on March 19th.  The MES-PTO provided pizza and water for all those in attendance prior to the actual start of the event.  Carol Dunn, organizer of the event, gave an introduction to computer coding and why it is important for today and the future.  Families were then assigned to classrooms with laptops ready to go.   Most students were familiar with coding through their technology classes and were able to teach their family member(s).  Attendees were up for the challenge with a little help from the faculty and high school volunteers.  

The enthusiasm and eagerness of the students to demonstrate to their families this skill set was a joy to watch.  Completing the levels gave students and adults alike, a sense of pride and accomplishment.  Planning has begun for the next MES family code night. 

Enjoy these highlights from the evening.
