2) Letter from Patrice Gans re: opportunity for HS Students:
My name is Patrice Gans.  I am with the nonprofit, Random Hacks of Kindness Junior.  We run Kids Coding for A Cause "hackathons" around the state. We are currently looking for high school students  to mentor at our upcoming program with the Girl Scouts of CT at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT on Sunday, February 2.  The program brings 4-8th graders together with CS mentors and local nonprofits to create prototype smartphone apps for the nonprofits.  We do this using MIT App Inventor. We provide mentorship materials for the students. We have many high school students from around CT that have participated in the program and find the experience very rewarding.  For more information you can contact me at reesegans@gmail.com.
