Coding and computer science are changing the face of nearly every industry on the planet. The Discovery’s Day of Code is your chance to explore the wonders of coding through a variety of hands-on activities. See live coding demonstrations with professionals in the industry, explore binary code, play coding games from Microsoft, use code to program a robotic insect, and much more! Attendees will receive a goodie bag from Microsoft, while supplies last!
It all happens in one giant, code-filled day! Join us and explore the power of code!
Live Coding Demo
Join Miguel from BDG Web Design as he works with the code required to create a website and learn about the challenges and opportunities in today’s coding careers.
Code Your Name
Learn how binary code works in Spark!Lab Smithsonian when you code your name onto paper or into a necklace. Use magnets to simulate the process that happens.
