Computer Science at North Pines Middle School

"On October 25th, five computer science students from North Pines Middle School joined teacher Maya Heissenbuttel and ventured to WSU’s downtown campus. There they met teachers, administrators, and state leaders at the Project Lead the Way State Conference. Students were able to share their experiences with North Pines' Introduction to Computer Science program with educators from other Washington State schools. Aidan Green, Caden Washburn, and Hailey Epley got to show off their skills at building computer applications and talk about their experience with Project Lead the Way. Drew Glass and Kai Saucier were asked to sit on a panel of PLTW students and answer questions from a very curious audience. Students talked about how computer science has helped them to better understand our increasingly connected and technology dependent world. Our students did a GREAT job representing North Pines!" np3
