CS Expo 2021

Thank you so much to all of our students, educators, staff, and administration for making CS Expo another success this year! We had a fun time taking a deeper look at the world of coding and computer science. Our community partners from Google, Apple, Lego, Discovery, Hacker Fund, Project Scientist, PLTW, Downey Space Center, and 9Dots took our students through an exploration from learning more about careers in computer science to building their own bitmojis.

A special thank you to Mr. Jose Gonzalez's and his student tech team, Mr. Austin Onwudachi, and Mr. Larry Hood and his students for supporting our event and leading presentations on Tinkercad, eSports, and binary code!
