From District C to the Census, lots to learn

Thanks to Beth Swartz for this heads up! On March 20, District C was featured in Education Week. District C is “an after-school program that brings together a diverse group of teenagers to solve complex, real-world problems.” The article showcases the ecosystem District C is building, one that includes local businesses, students, government, school districts, and innovation hubs. For the 2019-20 school year, District C will need over 40 businesses to provide problems for students to solve. If you know of a company who would be a great fit for District C, or if your company would like to participate, please email District C to get involved! Learn more in the featured article below.
