This special event welcomes fathers to join their middle school-aged children in an exploration of computer programming concepts. Families will work hands-on with Raspberry Pi technology and write detailed instruction sets to “program” each other through a life-size maze. The event focuses on core concepts of collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity.
As families learn with and from each other, students will see their parents as life-long learners; parents will have opportunities to explore, create, and learn alongside and from their students; and everyone will gain confidence as active, capable problem-solvers and innovators.
The Design Code Build student program welcomes middle schoolers from around the Bay Area to a series of one-day events that provide opportunities for all individuals to challenge themselves, become inspired, and see engineering, science, technology, and math as an exciting adventure that they can participate in.
Each 100-student event features a keynote “rock star” speaker from the tech industry who shares his or her knowledge, enthusiasm, and passion with the participants.
Rock stars explore their personal journeys and share insights about their work and industry that help to inspire curiosity and interest.
Please note that this event is for fathers with students in grades 6 through 8. Free but an RSVP is required.
