“We are seeking to make enjoyment about coding, programming and computational contemplating abilities to encourage our college students,” said Paula Herraez, 21st-century capabilities mentor for Pueblo D60.

Stations set up in the media centre gave students options to explore drone technologies, holograms, binary coding, computer software engineering, robotics and even a coding-focused digital dance bash.
