  • HarmonyHacks, Make School

    HarmonyHacks is a hackathon, or a place with a mild competitive spirit to build and code minimum viable product solutions to some of society's problems. Some values we hold true to our organization is that more minorities should participate in STEM careers. Everything in coding uses STEM, and our prize winning categories correlate with that. Winners will show their creative twist on solutions to help solve societal problems, such as the gender wage gap, social welfare issues such as poverty, and age discrimination. At Harmony, we believe that everybody should enjoy coding. Even looking at the statistics, simply not enough minorities, be it girls, people of color, or other demographics, code. We host this hackathon not only to inspire students to create solutions to societal problems, we want students to Ignite Their Passion.

  • USC Viterbi Robotics Open House, USC Viterbi

    This is a fun day with all the robotics research labs providing demonstrations every half hour for groups of 15 people, plus some hands-on fun and games. The labs are spread out in four buildings, so there is a lot to walk around and see. Visitors can move at their own pace to attend as many lab demonstrations as they want and take a break any time to explore campus, find something to eat (bring your own lunch or use a campus dining facility), and enjoy the day. The most crowded time is when the schools visit between 9 am - 2 pm, and the more leisurely afternoon pace is perfect for after school groups, clubs, families, and robotics industry executives.​

  • NorCal FIRST LEGO League Jr Expo, Intel Corporation, Folsom

    FIRST LEGO League Jr. is designed to introduce STEM concepts to kids ages 6 to 10 while exciting them through a brand they know and love − LEGO®. Guided by adult coaches, teams (up to 6 members, grades K-4) explore a real-world scientific problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc. Then the teams create a Show Me poster that illustrates their journey of discovery and introduces their team. They also construct a motorized model of what they learned using LEGO WeDo kits and LEGO building parts. In the process, teams learn about teamwork, the wonders of science and technology, and the FIRST Core Values, which include respect, sharing, and critical thinking. At the close of each season, teams come together at Expos to strut their stuff, share ideas, celebrate, and have fun! Come out and learn how our FIRST LEGO League Jr teams propose solutions to help the cities, towns, and places we call home reach new heights. In BOOMTOWN BUILD, Teams will tackle the questions - What if you could build a better world? Where would you begin? Learn more at www.firstinspires.org
