Today, the Advanced Learning Center hosted 200 junior high-aged girls in a field trip where they participated in the Hour of Code. As a way to demonstrate how code and programming is used in different applications, participants experienced the light show created by the Engineering & Robotics students and were able to watch bracelets get 3D printed. All participants earned a certificate for completing the Hour of Code as well as receiving more information on how to further their computer science education at home and at school.

We love having visitors here at the ALC. Today we were privileged to have three visitors from BYU, in our History and Psychology classes.  Savannah Burdine, Kayla Stewart and Ruth Bruce are part of the David O McKay Teaching Program and were observing classes, and even lead some of the discussions in the classes. 

It is  fun to meet new people and it is always great to interact with the colleges. 

 Thanks for coming today ladies. Good luck with your studies
