CodeCrew is joining Mentor Memphis Grizzlies and Mentor National in celebrating National Mentor Month and joining the MLK Day of Service. Our mentees will pay it forward by conducting an Hour of Code. The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. Adults are invited to join in on the fun. Participants will get the chance to build webpages using HTML and CSS.
This virtual event for students ages 11-19 will assemble five teams in Memphis and five teams in Tel Aviv, challenging each to build businesses that bring together sports and technology.

Each team will be scored by a panel of judges, with winning teams being awarded prizes. Students will also engage in a number of cultural exchanges and learn about social issues in their respective countries, as they reflect on historical context and recents events.
