Why Westborough?


Westborough has been at the forefront of education for decades; unfortunately, it is lacking in its adoption of computer science. As students of Westborough High School, we think that there is an under-utilization of resources on how computer science is taught; we want to fix that.

Why should I come?


Why not?! It's a weekend full of free-food, hanging out with friends, and having fun. Best-case scenario, you find out that you have a passion for computer science. Worst-case scenario, you just spend a weekend hanging out with friends and have a ton of free food and snacks.
