This Special Intermediate Edition of Design_Code_Build is open to all Girl Scouts currently enrolled in grades 6 through 8. Level 2 builds on the introductory program, exploring the engineering design process as students work in small teams to solve a tech challenge using Raspberry Pi technology. Throughout the day, participants design, code, and build with a variety of electronic components and household supplies. 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. This program is suitable for students 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 explore 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 event is in partnership with Girl Scouts of Northern California, and is suitable for girls in grades 6 through 8. This is an intermediate level of Design_Code_Build, designed for students who have previous programming experience, or who have attended a Design_Code_Build event in the past.
Design_Code_Build is developed and led by the Computer History Museum and made possible with generous support from our sponsors.
This program is made in coordination with the Girls Scouts of Northern California.
