Computer Project Meeting & Office Hours

This Thursday, June 25th, at 6 pm, I will hold a brief meeting with office hours until 8 pm. This meeting is OPTIONAL. However, I will be giving guidance on how we will proceed with project submissions and judging for this year’s fair. After that, I will open the floor to all of our youth and attempt to answer any questions they might have regarding their projects. No inquiry is out of bounds regarding technical depth, but I will preface the conversation that I know more about some things than others.
