Our teaching is inquiry-based, building on visitors’ interests, questions, and discoveries. Educators will find connections to their content in a broad range of subjects and disciplines. Our Broadcom Presents Design_Code_Build (DCB) programs for grades 3–12 align with Common Core, California State, and Next Generation Science Standards. Transportation reimbursement is available for Title 1 schools.
Interactive workshops enable students in grades 3–12 to take a deeper look at technology and computing history in ways that are specific to their developmental stages and abilities. All workshops integrate skills such as problem solving, questioning, collaboration, and public speaking.
DCB weekend workshops welcome students in grades 6–8 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. Learn more about each level of the program.
