Google Grant to ingiteCS (high school outreach)

Students Ashley Huynh, Steven Feng and Brandy Barber, along with their advisor, Dr. Bradley Barnes, recently received an igniteCS grant from Google to expand their CS outreach program (elevateCS). The organization's main goal is to provide computer science and technology outreach programs throughout high schools in Athens. Currently, ElevateCS hosts 1.5-hour technology workshops every week at Cedar Shoals High School. This Google grant will allow the program to purchase more hardware (Lego Mindstorms, Arduino Boards, etc.).  In the coming year, elevateCS hopes to recruit more mentees, solidify the curriculum, and expand to Clarke Central High School.
