UA Little Rock to Host Community Coding Day Dec. 4

High School teachers from around the state participate in a cybersecurity workshop at UA Little Rock. A lab portion of the 3 day workshop uses virtual reality devices to visualize a cyber attack from inside a network system.

The University of Arkansas at Little Rock will host a free Community Coding Day on Saturday, Dec. 4, to encourage members of the community to learn more about computer science education and innovations in Arkansas.

The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Engineering and Information Technology Building at UA Little Rock. It is sponsored by CSforAR and UA Little Rock’s Emerging Analytics Center.

The family friendly event will include demonstrations on coding, robotics, cybersecurity, augmented and virtual reality, and hacking.

This event celebrates the start of Computer Science Education Week on Dec. 6, an annual call to action to inspire K-12 students to learn about computer science, advocate for equity in computer science education, and celebrate the contributions of students, teachers, and partners in the field.

The event is free and open to the public. No prior experience in computer science or coding is necessary to attend. Parking will be available in lots 8 and 13 at UA Little Rock. For more information, email csforar@ade.arkansas.gov.
