ABOUT THE EVENT
The 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.
