Mrs. Pickett reported that one of the female students who came to Java Bootcamp with Iron Yard last year wants another one – she says she is taking AP CS this year bc of that bootcamp.
I told them we do not have access to these Iron Yard taeachers this year – NNPTC may be able to teach one.
Robin – add new AP CS teacher to Regional CS
