Event Name: Code-a-Thon - Grow the Planet
Event Date: 03/01/2024
Event Organizer: Rockbridge Shenandoah Chapter
Description: On March 1, for the third year in a row, our virtual Code-a-Thon blasts off to nine elementary schools in Virginia! The fictional Virginia AFCEA Space Alliance or VASA will once again travel to Planet X for a thrilling adventure called "Grow the Planet". Click on the video above to learn all the details. Our goal is to encourage the development of coding, promote interest in STEAM, and raise cyber awareness for the participating elementary students and their teachers. This is the only virtual code-a-thon event that connects public schools, DoDEA grant schools and Department of Defense schools in our region. Those volunteers supporting the event also are rewarded as they experience the thrill of making a difference in the young lives of our participants. As some of the teachers have noted "It is amazing to watch students' excitement around coding and STEAM grow throughout the day". Please support this project through donations of time or funds by contacting your local AFCEA chapter representative and becoming a sponsor.
