SUPER BOWL SOUNDTRACK
BATTLE OF THE BEATS
Each Super Bowl week, JReid InDeed hosts Coding for the Culture, where we introduce, inspire, and expand computer science education to students from underserved and underrepresented communities — through music. Participants will use EarSketch, a free online code editor, to compose musical remixes using songs from top recording artists.
Super Bowl LVIII will be hosted in Las Vegas, and the 2024 Coding for the Competition is reserved for 30 students from Democracy Preparatory Academy at Agassi Campus. The school's selected students will participate in two virtual computer science workshops and conclude with a coding competition for students to share their final presentation, remixing various beats and songs to create the "hypest beat" for the Super Bowl.
Coding for the Culture will host a panel of judges to evaluate the student's beats/songs and provide awards for the top 3 winners. All students will leave with swag, certificates, and additional prizes. The Coding for the Culture initiative is an integrative experience that highlights building STEM and computer science skills while empowering students to be creative and use their originality to create something memorable.
Students are required to develop unique music beats or soundtracks that capture the spirit and energy of the Super Bowl.
Students can create beats representing the spirit of the two competing teams. Incorporate elements like team chants, colors, and moods into their compositions.
HALF TIME SHOW REMIX
Students can remix iconic songs from past Super Bowl halftime shows or create their versions of popular halftime performances.
GAME DAY HYPE TRACK
Design a high-energy track that captures the excitement and anticipation leading to the Super Bowl kickoff [or] lend crowd noise into the beats, creating an immersive experience reminiscent of the live Super Bowl atmosphere.
Students can compose jingles or short tunes inspired by memorable Super Bowl commercials - being as innovative and creative as possible.
Create an anthem to be played in celebration if a team wins the Super Bowl. Capture the thrill and triumph in the music.
What People are saying about CFTC.
"I enthusiastically recommend this student coding competition. It’s a great opportunity to combine interests, challenge yourself, collaborate, and have fun doing it. The Phoenix Coding Academy community is grateful for this opportunity and look forward to seeing what the JReid Indeed Foundation does with future competitions that bring together coding, music, and the NFL!"
