welcome to high school outreach

The purpose of this program is to bring to South Florida and South California  High Schools a fresh flavor of what Computer Science has to offer.

Begining in Fall 2009, we will be visiting South Florida High Schools to showcase Computer Science (CS) as an exciting career path!

Starting 2011, this project is moved to South California.
