On Sunday, October 23, Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), will be hosting our first complimentary Kid’s Day in Detroit!
*All kids will participate in both workshops.
Every child loves Minecraft. Modifying (modding) Minecraft requires some basic computer skills but can then unleash their creativity. Through mods, kids can create characters, special effects, and bring their imagination to a game they already love playing. The CNCF community will bring our passion for technology and inclusion to Detroit area children. As an outcome, attendees will learn basic computer skills, apply their creativity, and hopefully be inspired by technology and heard by technologists.
Gotta Catch ‘Em All! Raspberry Pi and Java Pokemon Training:
The Pokemon have escaped the laboratory and are running amuck! Using a miniature Raspberry Pi computer, a 3D printed pokeball, and the Java programming language, you can catch all of the escaped Pokeman and return them to the professor. For this workshop hardware will be provided, but we recommend that you purchase your own Raspberry Pi to continue catching Pokemon at home!
Who can attend?
CNCF would like to invite children in the Detroit area who are interested in technology, coding, and STEAM fields. This workshop is appropriate for ages 8-14 (kids under 8 are welcome, but they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian).
