About this event

Have fun operating a virtual robot as you learn to code. Fun and learning for the family. Join us from the comfort of your home.

From elementary school through college, VEXcode is a coding environment that meets students at their level. The intuitive layout of VEXcode allows students to get started quickly and easily. VEXcode is consistent across Blocks and Text, across VEX 123, GO, IQ and V5. As students progress from elementary, middle, and high school, they never have to learn a different block, code, or toolbar interface. As a result, students can focus on creating with technology, not trying to navigate a new layout.

The purpose of the Black Family Technology Awareness Campaign is to empower and fully equip our community of families with the resources needed to become actively involved with the technology revolution. We intend to assist the process by working with faith-based organizations, corporations with a strong presence in our communities, small businesses, resource centers, such as schools and libraries, and city and state government agencies. By bringing together all these entities to focus on finding solutions, we hope to create models of success that will close the digital divide that threatens to perpetuate educational, financial, and social inequality in America.
