Investigating real-world problems in the CS classroom can be a challenge. One insightful way is through entrepreneurship. From concept to pitch deck, entrepreneurship offers students a chance to think outside the box and solve meaningful problems, whether it's based on industry standards or by breaking them! In this webinar on Tuesday, April 23 at 4:30pm Pacific/7:30pm Eastern, Kyle Sherman will be featured. Kyle won second place in the CivTech-SA Challenge startup weekend and took two teams to the annual San Antonio Civ-Tech Challenge for schools, which aims to solve community challenges and grow civically-minded tech talent. He will discuss his experience bringing the entrepreneurship experience to his classroom.
