Design_Code_Build Weekday Workshops

The Design_Code_Build (DCB) weekday workshop program integrates skills such as problem solving, questioning, collaboration, and public speaking for grades 3–12. All workshops align with Common Core, California State, and Next Generation Science Standards. 

DCB provides an opportunity for students to discover the history and impact of computing technology, explore relationships between the past and the present, and consider their own potential in our increasingly digital world. DCB engages students in interactive learning experiences, illuminates career paths that require technological literacy, and inspires them to continue studies in STEM.

Design the Future

A computer pioneer once told Steve Jobs, “You can’t really understand what’s going on now unless you understand what came before.” In this workshop, students will explore important innovations in computer history to help them imagine and design technologies for the future. Their innovations may someday be part of history! 


Make Software

Software allows computers to touch nearly every aspect of our daily lives. In this workshop, students will explore the history and impact of software, use Raspberry Pi technology to complete a project, and learn how the instructions they give computers can make things happen in the real world. 


K–12 groups must arrive with at least two adult chaperones over the age of 18 per 15 students. The Museum may, at its discretion, postpone or cancel visits for groups that arrive without adequate adult supervision.

Well-prepared chaperones are an essential part of a successful visit. Please ensure that all adults in your group are familiar with our Chaperone Guidelines before arriving at the Museum. Guidelines are also available in Spanish.


Individual cars may park in CHM’s front lot. Bus parking is available in the side lots. If no space is available, buses should park on the access road in areas that are not painted red.
