One thing is certain regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, students need access to online resources now more than ever. Lately we have been highlighting many content and education providers through our social media accounts. There are several quality coding and computer science learning resources students can access from home.
Tech Journey’s core values include providing tools, opening doors and committing to a journey. Fostering access to local technology professionals who serve as mentors and instructors is one way we demonstrate these values.
For public safety reasons, we have decided to cancel CoderDojoDSM meetups and YouthCode activities indefinitely. While we are hoping to resume these programs as soon as safely possible, we thought it best to continue our mission in the interim by mobilizing local technology professionals to inspire and engage with students online. To that end, we invite students to join us for TechTime.
TechTime will be virtual, volunteer-driven activity-based sessions that overview a single technology topic or project. Examples include creating a shooting game in Scratch, a meme generator with HTML/CSS, a rock-paper-scissors game in Python, or programming an Arduino in TinkerCad. While the content is important, we believe the primary benefit of TechTime will be students receiving the content from and working with local technology professionals.
More information about TechTime including a list of sessions can be found at techjourney.eventbrite.com. Registration is required.
