STEM·E Talks: Coding with Microsoft educates 3-12 grade students in coding with Microsoft professionals. This is a 2 hour workshop where students gain hands-on training taught by Microsoft coding experts. 2 WORKSHOPS IN 1!!!

This workshop is for grades 3-12 grade students ONLY. While parents may supervise, the activities are geared towards students alone.

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: Hacking STEM- Using Computational Thinking to Understand Earthquakes 

In this Hacking STEM Workshop, core earth science ideas are integrated with important 21st century technical skills.  Emphasis is placed on combining science, engineering and technology to gather and visualize earthquake data critical for making informed decisions about human safety. In this lesson, Microsoft partners with the California Academy of Sciences (CAS) and KQED to investigate seismic activity.   Students build a seismograph to visualize earthquake data and explore modern engineering techniques used to mitigate earthquake damage. Then, they engage in an Excel big data activity to understand plate tectonics. During the workshop, participant will:

• Take on the role of electrical, mechanical and software engineers and data scientists. 

• Build a seismograph using inexpensive materials. 

• Use data generated from student built seismographs to compare seismic events.  Record ideas and findings in a student journal. 

NEW THIS FALL: We will coding/software experts to speak to students about the field and future of computer programming. Students will be provided with presentations from prestigious programmers, have access to companies, and gain hands-on training to learn more in-depthly about these professions.Come and learn about software professions while you learn to program!
