Making STEM Presentations

Posted by / /

Ray Deiotte, ISSAC Director of Engineering & Innovation, was a guest earlier this week at Palmer High School (Colorado Springs, CO, District 11) for the school’s “STEM Lunch & Learn” program. Ray provided the students with an overview on the history of computing and future trends in computing – complete with a collection of unique visual aids. Students learned about early developments related to today’s computers, including such mathematical calculation tools as the abacus and the slide rule. ISSAC is a special partner to Palmer High School, focusing on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education and educating students for the data science and engineering jobs of the future.
