Inspiring Digital Literacy through
Broadcom Coding with Commitment®

An important trend in science fairs and coding spaces is that young people are seeking to solve problems that impact them personally or their communities in areas such as health, sanitation, energy, climate change, and other challenges set out in the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.

Young people increasingly connect their science knowledge with technology to research and design solutions for these challenges.

In addition to encouraging young people to think globally when they act locally, Broadcom Coding with Commitment® illuminates how coding is both a language, skillset, and an invaluable tool for college and careers. Coding is an essential 21st Century+ skill along with critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, communication and confidence

Broadcom Coding with Commitment® is only available to students in grades 5-8 participating in a Broadcom Foundation-supported competition or showcase, where they combine STEM Knowledge with Coding in the project’s research, design, or development in a project that expresses Passion for helping or improving one’s community.

Goals of Broadcom Coding with Commitment®

Educate how STEM knowledge and innovation helps protect, preserve, save, improve, or promote quality of life or nature.

Advocate Coding as both a language and design tool that all young people can use to advance their educational opportunities, careers, and life choices.

Inspire young people to “act locally and think globally.”

Coders of the Future

Broadcom Coding with Commitment® has inspired me to think of more science fair project ideas involving coding and computer technology at the high school level. This opportunity has guided me into choosing certain classes that involve coding with computer technology. Thanks to this award, I have been able to set myself into the right pathway for the rest of high-school and my future throughout college.”

“I've been encouraging others to learn coding with a few initiatives that I undertook last summer. I worked on reviving the Science Fair Club at my school and personally guided some of my peers to join the club and participate at the school fair. Also, I taught basic python programming to a few 7th graders in my community who were interested in learning Python. At the club, I have been working on various projects and it's been rewarding to see others get excited about coding and science. I'm grateful for the chance to share my passion with them.”
