Santa Cruz COE News



The Santa Cruz County Office of Education invites students to attend our Designing Mobile Apps TechShop.  The event will be held virtually on Wednesday, February 9th, 2021 from 4:00-5:30 pm and is designed for students in fifth through eighth grade.

The TechShop is being hosted in collaboration with TechGirlz, a non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire middle school girls to explore the possibilities of technology to empower their future careers. The event is also part of a countywide effort to promote computer science.

During the session, students will work in teams to design a mobile app with the support of the team from the Santa Cruz COE. Students will select an app idea, develop a prototype, and then share their idea with the group. Participants will also learn techniques to help them communicate a concept, create prototypes and work within a team!  

We encourage anyone interested to join us for this FREE event!
