Posted by Community Relations Department on 4/30/2014

Kazandra Zelaya, a member of the Metro Tech Robotics club, has been awarded a scholarship to the Summer Computer Science Institute at Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota.   The scholarship is worth $2395 and will cover the July 20-August 8 Summer Academic Program offered at the college.  Zelaya was chosen from a highly qualified pool of applicants from across the United States.



Zelaya is going to have a busy summer.  She has also been accepted into the Student Expedition Program (STEP) in which talented high-school students  with limited financial resources  discover the extent of their own abilities. Led by the National Outdoor Leadership School, STEP students go into the backcountry of Alaska to learn and lead in a remote wilderness setting during a three-week expedition.
