Description

Broadcom Presents Design_Code_Build is a program of interactive STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) events led by the Computer History Museum. These one day long events are designed to introduce Bay Area middle school students, particularly those from populations that are typically underrepresented in high-tech professions, to the basic concepts behind coding and applied mathematics, in order to excite them about pursuing STEM in their education and future careers.

Through activities that emphasize problem solving, collaboration, creativity, and project-based learning, students gain hands-on experience building and programming a Raspberry Pi, designing instruction sets to navigate a life-sized maze, and investigate historic methods of computer programming. Each event is keynoted by a "rock star" - a tech industry luminary who shares his or her personal story to inspire students and pique their interest – and supported by other tech professionals who act as role models and mentors throughout the day.
