We still need several more SVCC Kids Sunday instructors.  If you love teaching kids and want to give one or more 75 minute sessions, please head over to our session submission URL and make sure to check “Kid Session” when you submit your proposal.


Silicon Valley Code Camp for Kids (http://siliconvalley-codecamp.com/kids) is an event focused on promoting programming, robotics and engineering to kids in a fun and hands-on way. Our mission is to bring together the best and brightest of Silicon Valley tech community and the kids, the next generation best and brightest. The event is targeted at kids from 5-18 yrs old kids who would like to get their first exposure to technology, or hone their skills with specialized workshops.

This email is requesting educators to submit workshops on a topic of their interest. A workshop is 75 minutes long and you can submit multi-part workshops.

What are some of the topics that would be relevant?

  • Build some games in your browser?
  • Do you like to tinker with Tynker, Scratch, Blockly, Greenfoot or any other such technology?
  • Have you been giving workshops on LEGO, Arduino, RaspberryPi, Intel Galileo, or any other fancy boards?
  • Would you like to show a real practical use case of Internet of Things to kids using simple software and hardware?
  • How about some Java, JavaScript, Scala, HTML5, CSS, Python, Ruby?
  • Building simple mobile applications using Android or iOS?
  • Paper circuits?

And of course, feel free to submit any topics that would be relevant.

Looking forward to your submissions.

Arun Gupta,
Kids Director SVCC Kids Sunday
