CodeCrew + Exposure Events
COMMITTED TO RAISING COMPUTER SCIENCE AWARENESS
CodeCrew and The Memphis Public Libraries, are hosting Designers & Data: Tech Wearables Program powered by Infosys Foundation USA to introduce high school students in grades 7th - 12th to computer science through fashion. This program aims to help students depict how technology merges with fashion and provides students with the hands-on skills required to succeed in this field.
Participants will learn how to write code and Adafruit Circuit Playground. In addition, participants will also learn some basics about sewing to integrate the circuit into clothing.
The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to Computer Science, using fun tutorials to show that anybody can learn the basics.
Students will have the opportunity to engage in multiple hands-on activities. No experience is needed. Check out a video from one of our Hour of Code.
Our next Hour of Code will be May 2023. Check back in the Spring!
Students partner with volunteers from the Memphis tech community to create mobile applications and get the chance to showcase their projects to a panel of judges. Students will demonstrate their apps to the community, with the chance of winning big prizes. The Hackathon is open to all students entering grades five to twelve, with no required experience. There is a $10 administrative fee.
Please continue to check with us as the details are being finalized.
During this 5 week virtual summer camp, participants in grades 8 -12 will learn the fundamentals of how to build web applications. Throughout the course, parents are responsible for collecting data about spending in selected budget categories, while students learn to create apps. At the end of the course, parents and students will come together to build a financial application using the data parents have collected and the computer science skills students have learned.
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 comprise up to five members. Students will participate in workshops on business modeling, prototyping, and pitching. 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.
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.
