SUHI Red Devils Leaders in Computer Science in Schools!

The SUHI Counselors are so proud of Senior Karla Gonzalez and Computer Science teacher Mr. Lopez! They were invited by The College Board and the National Science Foundation to a meeting with one hundred computer science teachers and 6 students in support of continued implementation of the AP Computer Science Principles (CSP) course. The 100 Teacher Summit took place in Boston, MA on December 5-6.

It was an amazing and inspiring event!  Karla and Mr. Lopez spent two hours with White House US Deputy Chief Technology Advisor, for the Office of Science & Technology Policy, Dr. Ed Felten, Dr. Felten shared he meets with President Obama once a month! Wow, SUHI is two degrees away from the POTUS! Dr. Felten is the director of Princeton’s Center for Information Technology Policy and professor of Computer Science at Princeton University. He is a leading authority and expert on Computer Science and Public Policy.
