CS Enrichment for HS Students - Free Virtual Collaboration with Air Force Discovery Lab

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Five high school students completed a year-long, leisure-time distance-learning experience comprised of a series of ever-more-difficult programming and analysis tasks, mentored in a Virtual World environment by the US Air Force Discovery Lab. It resulted in a PAID summer computer science research internship. They will share their experience, and answer your questions. Is this enrichment activity right for YOUR best and brightest?
