Facebook Engineer for the Week

Facebook Engineer for the Week

Design and create your own projects in Scratch for social good, work with a team, and have fun!

Started in 2018, Facebook’s Engineer for the Week (EFTW) https://engineerfortheweek.fb.com/ aims to empower youth to explore engineering, develop computer science skills, and build tech prototypes that address a social issue of their choice.

To support our students in participating in EFTW, a number of our teachers will serve as facilitators for teams. Teachers will guide students in brainstorming, project creation, and testing, while introducing key engineering best practices. Sign up below to join one of the teams.

Every student that participates will receive a certificate from Facebook, and more importantly gain insights in what being an engineer is like.

Scratch Teams for Facebook EFTW 2021

  • Grades 5-12

    Max enrollment: 8 students per class

  • Each team will meet weekly for 4 weeks to learn engineering concepts such as what a sprint is, brainstorm social impact issues to address, and of course, spend a lot of time building and providing feedback on games. We will go through multiple iterations to improve the games - just like how real engineers do it. And finally we will submit each team project to Facebook. Up to 8 student per class/team.
  • Class includes 4 sessions

    Each session is 60 minutes

These virtually taught classes are so engaging, my son really enjoys them and is so excited to show us the coding projects he has completed on all 3 levels of Scratch Ninja. We will definitely be signing him up for more classes and thoroughly recommend Create and Learn to other parents.

My kid is having a blast with the Scratch class. It’s a fun way to introduce her to coding. She’s learning so much and you can really tell the instructors care about your kid succeeding and having fun in the process! Highly recommend!

My girls (ages 8 & 10) have loved the Scratch Jr class. The teacher is very patient and the girls are really enjoying it. I can see their curiosity into coding growing.
