CS KickStart was an enormous success!!! 24 incredibly motivated and talented student took part of last week's CS KickStart. They were taught how to program in python and worked on projects related to image editing such as matting your photo onto a new background. Aside from classes, we were lucky to be able to visit the Google San Francisco office and have lunch with some Googlers. We also visited the Exploratorium on our field trip. Lastly, we are really grateful for all the inspiring speakers that came to visit us this week, including Prof Kathy Yelick, Cindee Madison, Bjoern Hartmann, Sarah Van Wart, Joe Hellerstein, Marie-Ange Eyoum, Mira Dontcheva, Sharena Pari-Monasch, David Wagner, Tsu-Jae King Liu, Christos Papadimitriou and Claire Tomlin. Thank you! And make sure to check out our photos
