Join us for the first ever, Black Boys Code robotics hackathon to take place at the Surrey City Centre Library on Nov 19th 2016. Participants will be asked to develop the best, smartest, and most creative solution they can over the course of the BlackBoysCode 2016 Hackathon Challenge. By the end of the workshop they will have programmed a physical robot to traverse obstacles. The boys will have also learned skills such as collaboration (working in teams), critical thinking (programming), and communication (presentation skills)…all this at no cost to you.
Please note, lunch will be provided.
Once you register for this event please complete the three forms which can be found at this link on our website:http://www.blackboyscode.org/parents. Please bring signed copies of these forms to the event. Those boys who have not checked in by 10:45 AM will forfeit their space.
See you there!
