Design_Code_Build 2017-04-08

The Design_Code_Build program welcomes students in grades 6 through 8 to participate in one-day events that provide engaging hands-on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, math) learning opportunities. Activities focus on problem-solving and innovation through the lens of computer science and computing history. Each event welcomes up to 100 students and features a keynote “rock star” speaker from the tech industry. Rock stars explores their personal and professional journeys and share insights that help to inspire students’ interest and curiosity. The program is supported by volunteers from the tech industry who act as role models and mentors, allowing students to meet and get to know real tech professionals.

Level 1 introduces concepts of computer programming, as participants work hands-on with Raspberry Pi technology, write detailed instruction sets to “program” a partner through a life-size maze, and learn about the relevance and impact of computer history. This program is suitable for students with little to no programming experience and focuses on core concepts of collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity, to help students to practice communication skills and gain confidence to see themselves as active, capable problem-solvers and future innovators.

Please note that this program is suitable for students in grades 6 through 8.

There is a $15.00 non-refundable registration fee per student participating in the event. To inquire about financial assistance, please contact Cate Robbins.

Design_Code_Build is developed and led by the Computer History Museum and made possible with generous support from our sponsors.
