Why STEAM Education is Important to Us
We are passionate about giving kids a hands-on, fun, creative experience where they can have access to the latest digital arts tools and technologies in a hands-on, project-focused way. The idea for the Digital Arts Experience was born in 2011 when CEO Rob Kissner decided that kids shouldn’t have to wait to get their hands on creative technology and gain experience in different fields in order to pursue what they love.
What is AT&T Code Heroes?
Learning to code is about much more than simply creating games. Code can be used to educate our peers and change the world. This program focuses on creating amazing experiences with code to educate our community on the effects of cyberbullying. Students will address the impacts of cyberbullying and design a choose your own adventure game that presents a variety of different cyberbullying scenarios.
Each group will brainstorm and storyboard their scenarios, create custom graphics, and code their games using Scratch! This program is for grades 6 – 8. The Digital Arts Experience is providing this program in partnership with AT&T and The Westchester Library System and is 100% free!
