Review for Techstart Education Foundation, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

TechStart has helped make connections between those in my field (Software Engineering) and those who teach computer science, so that we can work to help each other. In 2009 I presented my industry experience at the Oregon Games Programming Challenge, showing middle school and high school students what software engineering was all about. In 2010, at the same event I was a judge. As a college computer science instructor, I have attended Superquest 2009 and 2010 in order to learn better ways to do outreach to encourage young people to enter the field of computer science. I have attended games programming coach's training sponsored by Techstart. And, last but certainly not least, I will be a mentor for a high school robotics team 2010-2011 due to connections made through TechStart sponsored Superquest.
