Students from Manson Middle School and Manson High School attended Microsoft’s Computer Science Fair on April 19, 2017. Students attending the field trip met employees of small start-ups all the way up to the biggest technology companies in the world. The half-science fair, half-technology fair featured over 50 booths staffed by software engineers from Microsoft, Expedia, Google, Hulu and other companies, who told students how they got into their careers, what they do, and the products they work on. Local college computer science programs, such as the University of Washington and Seattle Pacific University, were joined by alumni from UC Berkeley, Michigan, Texas, and Harvard, who spoke to students about pursuing computer science after high school. X-Box and BB8 Robots were raffled to students with Sierra Yearout from Manson winning a BB8.
