MIAMI | Twelve students from Msgr. Edward Pace High School’s AP Computer Science Principles class had the opportunity to program circuits, fly drones, race cars and engage in other STEM-related activities when they took part in TEN80 Education’s STEM Innovators-in-Training Workshop at the Miami Airport Convention Center last month.
The students attended workshops and sessions focused on the important aspects of innovation, engineering, enterprise, content and leadership.
"The STEM workshop was really interesting. I learned different things about coding and it enhanced my interest in computer science,” said Kai Cooper, a senior at Pace.
The AP Computer Science Principles class at Pace’s Emerging Computer Technologies Program is taught by lead teacher Hedda Falcon and is part of the school’s Signature STEM Academy program, designed to prepare students interested in a career within the computer science industry.
