Event description
Demo Day is our major event for the ideaSpark computer science mentoring program for students ages 11 to 15.

About this Event

At Demo Day, ideaSpark students have an opportunity to share their creative technology projects with family and the community, while gaining valuable public speaking experience. It's a showcase of the incredible talent and hard work these young coders have put in across 14 weeks with their mentors and teams.

This fall semester students learned how to customize Minecraft to make mods and mini-games by coding in Python, a beginner-friendly and popular programming language. At Demo Day, teams of two to four will share their creative Minecraft projects. They will also be inspired by guest speaker Jonathan Ortiz, a developer on the Minecraft team at Microsoft.
