Night of Code at City Neighbors

Are you interested in learning about ways to ignite your child’s curiosity around the ever-growing field of computer science?  Join us for our second annual Night of Code on Thursday, January 9!  We’ll go over basic ways that you and your child can begin the journey of learning to code.  No experience necessary, as we will be starting from the ground up.

This event is open to all City Neighbors students and there is no need to sign up or pre-register.  We’ll meet from 5:30 to 6:30 at the City Neighbors High School Café.  See you there!
