We had 100 students in 40 teams representing 19 schools join us Saturday for our programming contest hosted and sponsored Amazon.com!
Dozens of teachers and industry volunteers made this possible by judging problems, registering students, trekking up & down stairs passing out food & T-shirts, hunting for power cables and more! Special thanks to our precision judges and Amazon.com staff: coordinator, Elton Pinto and speaker, Gus Lopez. All of your contributions were invaluable to making this event a big success. Again thank you all so much.
