More than 100 families turned out for the district’s first-ever Family Code Night at Finley Middle School on Nov. 27.

The event, which was organized by district STREAM (science, technology, research, engineering, arts and math) teachers Ken Altamirano, Cheryl Carmody, Jessica McKenna and Giselle Taylor, was presented as part of the Board of Education’s Educational Workshop series. It featured district students leading hands-on coding and robotics activities learned in their STREAM classes to family members and others. In addition to using Bee-bots, Blue-bots and Code-A-Pillars, students and their families had an opportunity to create their own video game using Bloxels, built structures with Keva Planks, and programmed Ozobots using lines, colors and codes. 

Also at the event, the finalists of the STREAM Logo Contest were honored. 

Congratulations to Mia DiFrancisco, Matthew Jackson, Ella Nossa and Mia Rivera. Rivera was named winner of the competition.
