Family Code Night
Show details
The Directorate for Digital Literacy & Transversal Skills seeks to promote Computational Thinking in children and young people. These competences enable them to think in a different way, to express themselves through a variety of media, to solve real-world problems and analyse everyday issues with a different perspective.
This scholastic year, the Directorate is launching a new initiative ‘Family Code Nights’ in which adults discover ways in which they can support their child's learning as children and adults engage in fun coding activities.
Parents/Guardians and their children are invited to participate in a series of Lego Education Wedo robotics workshops which will be delivered by Lego Academy certified trainers. These Family Learning Workshops are the perfect place to learn with your child. In each workshop, adults discover ways in which they can support their child's learning as children engage in fun coding activities. For further details see the attached flyer.
Parents who want to help out as event volunteers are welcome. Parents and kids with technical experience, are encouraged to register as Code Coaches.

Target audience
Parents and their children
