NHS Students back at CS4RI for an Engaging Day Focused on Tech!

On December 21st, NHS students were back at CS4RI hosted by University of Rhode Island!

CS4RI (Computer Science for Rhode Island) is a state initiative launched in 2016 by the Office of Governor Gina Raimondo to bring high quality computer science (CS) learning experiences to all students.

Our high school students who are a part of our Information and Computer Technology program as well as ones who may be interested in this field at NHS were invited to view exhibits from all of the 2020 CS4RI High School Grant Recipients in an effort to expose our students to high tech careers and recruit students into our own CTE program.

Our CTE students demonstrated their projects of robotics and Virtual Reality.

Then, the students were able to meet and learn during special 45-minute sessions on companies and topics such as Dan Berman from Computer Museum who presented a circular dial display workshop, Joe Mazzone from Coding Rooms who presented a hands-on workshop on creating your first mobile app, Suzanne Mello-Stark from Rhode Island College who presented a workshop on Mega Data and Digital protection and Rachel Barber from IGT who presented about pathways to jobs in her company.

Thank you to URI for hosting this event and welcoming us back for this informative day!
