Code Savvy Connections
The Latest From Code Savvy - Volunteer Appreciation Month
April is Volunteer Appreciation month, and today I want to take a moment to express my deep gratitude to all of the incredible individuals who make our programs possible through their selfless dedication and generosity.
Code Savvy's mission is to empower the next generation of computer scientists, particularly those who come from underrepresented communities in tech, and we couldn't achieve this without the tireless efforts of our volunteers.
Every day, our volunteers demonstrate their passion and commitment to building a more inclusive future for all. They give their time, their energy, and their expertise to help kids learn and grow, and they inspire us all with their creativity and ingenuity. Whether they are mentoring a young student one-on-one, leading a committee or project, or organizing a community event, our volunteers are the backbone of our organization.
So to all of our amazing volunteers: thank you! Your dedication and hard work are changing lives and shaping the future of our field. We appreciate you more than words can express, and we are so honored to work alongside you in pursuit of our shared goals.
To those who are interested in supporting our programs, I encourage you to consider volunteering with us or making a donation to help us continue our vital work.
Together, we can create a world where all children have the opportunity to become the computer scientists of tomorrow.
This Week’s Spotlight and Project-Inspiration Theme: Robotics Week
April 8th to 16th is National Robotics Week (RoboWeek)! A time to inspire and share the excitement with students of all ages in robotics and STEM-related fields. Robotics can be used across all industries to improve efficiency, safety, and overall experience. As the field of robotics is ever-growing, it is important to teach and make robotics accessible for all students.
There are many different events occurring throughout the week, but there will be a Twitter Party all week for people to share robotics resources. They will be spotlighting the names and faces of innovating robotics tech as well as sharing virtual classes. Check out their website to find an event near you!
There are also many free online activities for both the classroom and at home. We are highlighting three activities below, but you can check out more here!
Design Your Own Robo-Bug: Design your own mission-driven robot based on biomimicry.
iRobot Education: Resources to help learners of any age engage with Robotics Week.
AI Experiments with Google: Simple experiments to begin exploring machine learning.
Whatever you decide to create, don't forget to share it with us @codesavvyorg and use #RoboWeek!
