YEAHHH CS FOR BOSTON JUST GOT A VENUE AT THE CENTRAL BOSTON PUBLIC LIBRARY + CATERING!!!! Now all I need is to advertise to local schools, I'll start off by messaging one of my old teachers and I'll ask my sister about anyone who'd be interested!
Hello! For those who don't know me, I'm Elysse Gonzalez from Boston, Massachusetts. I am currently a 15y/o freshman at the John D. O'Bryant School of Mathematics and Science.
Growing up and being from a lower class / low-income family, I never had the true ability to get into programming at a young age due to a lack of resources and classes. As I really got into programming and working on awesome projects, I just wished I could've had the resources I wasn't able to access due to monetary restrictions and my general location.
I am hosting CS For Boston, a series of 5-8th grade workshops being hosted in community centers around Boston (and neighboring cities) made to provide CS education to underprivileged communities or those looking to get into CS who simply don't have the resources. I am starting this project as soon as possible.
Although this is in it's early stages, I'd definitely love for you guys to stay tuned and see what I have planned.
Many thanks to Zach Latta who has just recently helped me with really planning out the event and creating an aim for it to reach full potential! :bmo:
