I'm speaking at Middle School Career Day today for Web Design. This is kinda funny because my contract at CRI is ending next week (by choice, not cause CRI isn't a great place to work, but because I want to do lots of things besides web design) and I just got a job working for the DFL Senate Caucus. Really, the only reason I was asked to speak is because Liana is on the committee.
I'm excited to make code interesting, encourage all of them to take math classes (a personal soapbox, stupid math anxiety) and wear my supercute suit that I bought for the 7thCD Convention.
I'm not sure how html-savvy these kids will be, but they will probably surprise me. I'm going to try and keep the technical stuff to a minimum and I have a little activity planned.
I'm hoping some of my youth groupies will end up in my session.
