We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and less students are studying it than a decade ago.

We had a wonderful turnout for our Community Event, 10 Years of Alpine. This event was hosted by our student leadership team. They have been meeting since the beginning of the year, identifying problems we have at Alpine that are important to students, staff, parents and our community. Through our work, 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders have used the design thinking process to develop empathy for those affected by the problems we have identified. At our community event, students shared the problems, the needs of the users and helped to define specific areas needing support.
