Back by popular demand, an all-ages Parent University offering a family evening of hands-on Making, Coding and STEAMing (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) exploration will be hosted by the D64 Tech Departrment on Tuesday, April 17, 2018 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Lincoln Middle School, Learning Resource Center (LRC), 200 S.
