College Headlines


Things will be hopping at the Akron Art Museum on Saturday, May (the) 4th, as girls (and other problem-solvers) ages 11-18 gather for the Code Hopper Challenge. 

Teams of 2-3 students each will work collaboratively to create art using code and will participate in other code-related activities. The teams can use the coding platform of their choice, but popular choices are Scratch, Javascript, Pencilcode.net, and HTML.  And for those who need a creative distraction, there will be techie activities available.  

This year's guest speaker is Sherry Neubert, Vice President & CIO at The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company.

We hope you will join us for fun and problem solving.  Get more information and register on our website.

May the Fourth be with you!
