Code Night!

Friday, November 2nd

 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

A Free Event For Students Aged 8+

What is Code Night?

Code Night is an opportunity for your children to have an introduction to learn about programming while you take the night off. Our Educators teach JavaScript and support students as they start their journey into the world of Computer Science. 

Age Range & Activities

Computer Science Board Games: Our team will dedicate 2 tables to a series of board games focused on teaching younger students key Computer Science concepts through play.

Code Naturally: Students will learn to program in JavaScript using the Code Naturally app. Our educators will teach them to program illustrations, animations, and basic games if time allows. Students decide what they want to make and work with our educators to bring it to life!

This event is designed for students that are 8+

Our Educators

Our Education Team works with several local schools ranging from Pacific Collegiate School on the Westside, Brook Knoll School in Scotts Valley, and even as far as Bradley Elementary School in Pajaro Valley. 

All of our educators must pass background checks and training necessary to work with students. Our students’ safety is priority #1 for our team! 

All parents are required to provide emergency contact and food allergy information upon sign up. 

A Chance To Support Local Schools

This Code Night, we’re gathering donations to provide computer mice to local schools! Most schools in Santa Cruz City Schools have purchased Chromebooks for their students because they are affordable while meeting the needs of their teachers. Unfortunately, trackpads on these devices have a short lifespan and often become unresponsive or glitchy after as little as a year’s use! We want to provide our local schools with computer mice so that the students can more easily use the technology already in their schools.

Teachers who are experiencing this problem have already applied to be recipients of the mice we purchase so please donate at sign-up this Code Night!

We are also accepting donations of new or lightly used mice at this Code Night

What do parents think?

“The hands on approach using both a create then immediate feedback platform and highly motivated instructors was high impact. She loves the class and has learned an amazing amount @ the same time.”

Curt Aubley

The team at Code Naturally gives her 1:1 help so she can go at her own pace.  But the most important thing is the Code Naturally team is making coding fun so my daughter has an affinity and interest in applied science.

“It is a great environment where kids can work at their own pace with hands on instructions. But the best part is the kids learn to work together and encourage and share with each other. ”
