Big Technology in Little Hands

mini hackathon

( for students in grade 2 – 8 )

September 13th, 2020

4:00pm – 8:00pm

 

My students in my CS and Technology classes brought their friends and siblings. Kids were excited to gather together virtually at the beginning of the school year! The event included Breakout Room Social activities, Tech Talks, Kahoot games, A.I. movie viewings, and coding in AppLab and Javascript. 

 

“Great Summer Program!”

“The best summer program ever!”
“So much fun!”
“I learned so much!”
“Now I’m a Python expert!”
“I want to be a software engineer when I grow up.”

The participants and parents thought that was the best summer experience ever! See you next summer (hopefully in person)!

1. Workshop/Tech Support:
    how to use online tools
         ( for senior citizens)

The pandemic hit suddenly, and all our social connections turned virtual. It troubled senior citizens due to a lack of tech knowledge. Through phone conferences, email communications, and YouTube, we provided step-by-step instructions on how to use Zoom meetings, buy food and medicine online, and other internet utilities for daily use at home.

2. Don’t Be Bored and Start Coding!
           ( for K-5 students )

There was not much school work during the first several months when schools turned to virtual suddenly. Todd-Tech-Talk held 2 seminars to introduce coding in AppLab and Javascript with code.org for beginners. We kept these kids very busy when we were stuck at home!
