• CS Summer Bridge Program

  • We offered our first Computer Science Summer Bridge Program for the ninth grade during Summer 2020.  We are asking principals and counselors to help identify students who would benefit from this program.  We are prioritizing students from historically underrepresented populations (minority students, females, low income, etc.) in the computer science fields of study and workplaces.   120 students will be eligible to participate in one of two planned weeks during June 2020.  Students in this program will learn to program an artificial intelligence while using the Python programming language and learn about careers in computer science while engaging with professionals from the computer science field.  Students do not need prior experience to participate in this program.  There will be no charge for students to participate in this program.
