Interactive technology in the spotlight at Family Coding Night


Students of all ages were able to try out interactive robotic exhibits as part of Family Coding Night at Miller Middle School on December 6.

Hundreds of people attended the second annual Family Coding Night on December 6 at the gym at Miller Middle School. Families with children of all ages took part in the interactive exhibits focused on STEM, computer science, robotics and other technology.

Exhibits were led by Marshalltown Community School District students, staff and representatives from Central Rivers Area Education Agency.

The event also served as a recognition for those companies which donated to the new ST Math curriculum in the district.
