Families & Community Groups

Creating Community

Families and community groups can discover, create, and learn at CHM. Have fun exploring the past, present, and future of technology through hands-on activities while creatively solving problems. Make new friends and be inspired to change the world!

We offer events, teen internships, tours, resources, and Broadcom Presents Design_Code_Build (DCB) workshops for families and community groups.

Minecraft: Education Edition

The Great Tech Story, CHM’s world in Minecraft: Education Edition, immerses students ages 8–18 in a virtual exhibit where they engage with key artifacts and innovators and teleport to learn hardware and software concepts, meet a startup team, debate ethics in tech, and reflect on how technology is used in daily life.

Culminating in a “build challenge,” students apply their knowledge to tackle real-world problems, building their capacity as active problem solvers, digital citizens, and future innovators.

The Great Tech Story
