Bay Area Updates: May

The end of the program year is quickly approaching…

…and what a long year it’s been! We’ve all experienced a lot during this pandemic and, despite everything, have shown up for each other and for our continued learning and growth. As you make your way to the finish line and complete your tests, projects, graduations, and more, we hope you take time to appreciate all the work you’ve done this year and to be proud of what you’ve accomplished. We’re excited to see your final projects and what you build next!
