Centre Avenue school sixth grade students welcomed virtual guest speaker Richie Chu during their STEAM classes for Computer Science in Education Week.

Mr. Chu works for Amazon Robotics and joined the class for an informational session and discussed computer science, college and career readiness, and the field of robotics. He fielded many questions from students that pertained to programming robots, working remotely, types of robots that Amazon uses, and how computer coding relates to video games.

Teacher Michelle Healy said this was a “great opportunity for our students to hear from someone working in a STEAM related career field, and for them to connect what they do in their STEAM classes to what they could do in the future.”
