Broadcom Presents Design_Code_Build is a daylong education program put on by the Computer History Museum. Each event is filled with activities that explore the basics of computer programming, from concept to coding. Students will meet inspiring tech industry “rock stars,” build their own working computers using a Raspberry Pi, and investigate how programming was done in the past. The day will end with creative group presentations in which students will showcase the concepts and skills they have learned.
Please note that this program is designed for grades 6 through 8.
About Broadcom Presents Design_Code_Build
Broadcom Presents Design_Code_Build is a program of interactive STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) events put on by the Computer History Museum. These one day long events are designed to introduce Bay Area middle school students, particularly those from populations that are typically underrepresented in high-tech professions, to the basic concepts behind coding and applied mathematics, in order to excite them about pursuing STEM in their education and future careers.
Through activities that emphasize problem solving, collaboration, creativity, and project-based learning, students gain hands-on experience building and programming a Raspberry Pi, designing instruction sets to navigate a life-sized maze, and working with Museum docents to investigate historic methods of computer programming. Each event is keynoted by a “rock star” – a tech industry luminary who shares his or her personal story to inspire students and pique their interest – and supported by other tech professionals who act as role models and mentors throughout the day.
