Thanks to Kadia Koch and Ryan Smosna for representing Hernandez Middle school at the Outer Limits Showcase. Only one other school, a high school, showcased their digital art and the makey-makey exhibit by our students was a big hit. We also had the opportunity to showcase Space Dogzz entry. Great job Kadia and Ryan.
