We had another incredible Bilingual Community Tech Day this past Sunday at Cultura in Pilsen! Families and techies from Indianapolis to Schaumburg to right next door joined us to talk about the tech industry, get blown away by our multiple VR headsets, dabble in programming using Scratch, use our bilingual app to control our Mini Darwin Robot, and construct circuits using Squishy Circuits, Snap Circuits, and Little Bits. A group of techies also projected their computer on a screen and coded live, building an app using Ruby on Rails and giving kids and parents an inside look at coding. We also gave away a robotic kit to one lucky winner and got a kick out of kids groovin’ to some cumbia! No wonder no one wanted to leave at the end of the day!
We’ve been inspired by the awesome response to our tech day and are looking to take the show on the road to different communities and suburbs in the Chicagoland area. If you’d like for us to visit your community, contact us at [email protected]
