I am happy to announce that the University of Memphis / Herff College of Engineering has announced E-Day (Herff College Engineering Day) will once again take place this year (after a few years off due to covid).
It is being moved to a Saturday in February instead of a week day and the program will be different than in the past (details are still being worked on but will be posted at https://www.memphis.edu/herff/eday/ when finalized).
he FedEx Institute of Technology and CodeCrew are bringing the inaugural UMazing<Tech/>Race to Memphis. The event will take place at the FedEx Institute of Technology (FIT), Saturday, September 17, 2022, beginning at 9:00 AM. Participants will matriculate throughout the FIT with specific stations unveiled via clues as participants complete each station.
The event is timed. Our goal is to combine physical activity with computer science and technology activities. The event encourages health and exposes participants to be more than just consumers of technology, but producers of technology.
The event is open to teams of two, ages 12 and up. For teams where both participants are minors, a chaperon (18+) will need to join the team during the race.

Using age-appropriate coding toys has a significant, positive impact on preschoolers’ math abilities, according to the findings of a pilot study that will be discussed at the 2022 International Society for Technology in Education conference.
Because much of the existing research on the benefits of coding on children’s development were focused on elementary-age kids, Eastern Connecticut State University professor Sudha Swaminathan decided to look into how coding impacts younger children’s development.
The small pilot study was structured as a pre- and post-assessment with coding activities as intervention. Six 4- and 5-year-olds who attend the university’s Center for Early Childhood Education played with a Bee-Bot, a robotic toy shaped like a bumblebee with forward, backward, left, and right arrow buttons, as well as “go” and “clear” buttons, on its back.
