Education Event Broadcom Presents

Design_Code_Build - Mentors' Edition 03-26-2017

This special event welcomes middle school students and their adult mentors to participate together. Students will work alongside their mentors to solve a tech challenge using Raspberry Pi technology. Program instructors help participants to make personal connections with artifacts and stories from the Museum’s collection as they learn from history to design for the future. Students and their adult mentors will learn with and from each other as they take on new challenges and gain confidence as active, capable problem-solvers and innovators. This event is suitable for participants who have previously participated in the introductory program or who have some experience with computer programming.

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.

Please note that this program is suitable for students in grades 6 through 8 and their adult mentors.

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