It was an evening full of coding, creativity, and hands-on STEAM activities for EISD students from Kindergarten though eighth grade. I was happy to work with Fred Benitez to share a family/student session on coding with Scratch Jr. After a few tips on how to use the program, students created their own stories using Scratch Jr as their parents looked on and offered suggestions. We then shared our coding creations with each other on the big screen (thanks to the amazing new Computer Science Design Lab room). Next door, WHS Computer Science teacher Lynn Rosier worked with older students to code more advanced projects using more advanced coding languages. Around the building, students and families explored 3-D printing, and robots...so many robots! We were so grateful for the help and support of many Eanes teachers, Ed Techs, high school students, and volunteers. We cannot wait for the next installment of Family Coding Night!
