Students and their adult mentors, supported by and involved with mentoring organizations in and around the Bay Area, are invited to participate in a special edition of Design_Code_Build!
This special event welcomes middle school students and their adult mentors to take part in an exploration of computer programming concepts. Mentor pairs will work hands-on with Raspberry Pi technology, write detailed instruction sets to “program” each other through a life-sized maze, and learn about the relevance and impact of computer history. Students and their 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 with little to no programming experience and focuses on core concepts of collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity.
This 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. This special event features a keynote “rock star” speaker from the tech industry who will explore their personal and professional journey, sharing insights that help to inspire students’ interest and curiosity.
Please note that this event is for mentors and their students in grades 6 through 8.
There is a $15.00 non-refundable fee per individual participating in the event. To inquire about financial assistance, please contact Kate McGregor.
Design_Code_Build is developed and led by the Computer History Museum and made possible with generous support from our sponsors.
