      Happy Friday, IA families! We welcomed over 30 business partners to campus today to help our students “code for a cause.”  Students designed an educational computer game, used raspberry pi’s to tackle solutions for geographic information systems, prototyped solutions for inequitable access in remote areas, and used other coding languages and skills to solve some of our community needs. As always, thank you for your support.
