Hour of Code

4th grade classes will participate in an hour of coding, the process of writing a computer program using a programming language.  This event is part of a national initiative to increase diversity in computer science as well as to introduce coding to students at a young age.  This is a free program, offered annually in December.  Applications available in the fall.

WeCode for Adults - This boot camp is full.

WeCode at Saginaw Valley State University is a FREE one-day weekend boot camp for beginners who would like to explore basics of coding using Sphero Programming. Our main objective is to encourage everyone to try out programming and explore the possible opportunities in the field of Computer Science. Offered in Fall and Winter semesters. Current semester is full.

Teaching Resources

As a teacher, how do you make science and math cool? Fun? Interesting? You're passionate and want your students to know that these subjects can be cool, fun, interesting and rewarding! SVSU is developing new programs that will give you:

  • the tools necessary to bring more hands-on projects into your classroom,
  • methods to change negative perceptions about science, math, and computer/technology classes
  • networking opportunities with professionals in the Great Lakes Bay Region who utilize STEM skills every day.
