In our fourth year of the Elementary STREAM program in Glen Cove (2017), we realized many of our families still did not have a true understanding of what STREAM is and what elementary students do in our STREAM classes. In order to engage families and showcase student learning, we invited families for a District Wide Elementary Family Code Night. This night was inspired by our students and their passion for STREAM. We researched various Family Code/STREAM nights and came up with a unique plan that would work for the families and students in our district. Family Code Night started last year and will continue to be an annual event for us in Glen Cove for many years to come. In our second year, it will be evolving to include more STREAM activities that are not limited to just coding and robotics. We would like to share our journey with the attendees at the conference to help them in engaging families outside of the classroom through a Family Code or STREAM Night of their own. This event was truly a team effort that required the assistance and dedication of many members of the Glen Cove School District. Our district Science and Technology Coordinators will be explaining their roles in the event and how they supported the STREAM teachers in this initiative. The STREAM teachers will share their vision and how they imagined, planned, created and then improved this event in its second year.
