ABOUT THE EVENT
The UMazing<Tech/>Race combines the adventure and format of the award-winning television competition with a tech twist that exposes teams to various hands-on computer science experiences and activities.
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 UMazing<Tech/>Race will be hosted at the FedEx Institute of Technology, 365 Innovation Drive, Memphis, TN 38152. Participating teams will receive clues to decipher, leading them to the next station throughout the race. 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+) is required to join the team throughout the race.
