The AYSI-SCI lecture program has officially come to an end! Thank you so much to the amazing students, parents, lecturers, and teaching assistants that helped contribute to our success. A special thank you goes out to our amazing sponsors at AMS and the ACP foundation as well as our guest lecturers from the Mark Cuban Foundation.
Although our lecture program may have ended, we are far from finished. Starting July 1st will be our much anticipated competition program in which students will use the topics they've learned to create a capstone project and compete for monetary prizes and trophies.
Students will work with their previously chosen or assigned teammates to create applications or software projects that aim to solve real issues present in their community or society at large. They will have a month to complete their projects and presentations, so get working soon and good luck to all!
Our AYSI-SCI students are now well into the lecture program with both our junior and senior divisions completing lesson 8 yesterday. Students have learned topics ranging from introductory programming syntax to advanced machine learning concepts, and every day they continue to practice their skills with homework and take-home projects.
Both junior and senior divisions of the AYSI-SCI lecture program were also delighted to welcome Jesse Stauffer from the Mark Cuban Foundation to guest lecture our joint 3rd lesson. Over the past few weeks, our amazing AYSI team has delivered a practical and fun computer science education to our 250 phenomenal students. We hope to continue our engagement and success throughout the rest of the lecture program and onwards into the competition program.
