A Chat With Jacqueline Olliges from Amazon Future Engineer
We sat down with Jacqueline Olliges from Amazon Future Engineer to discuss the Amazon Future Engineer + BootUp PD Computer Science Elementary Sponsorship, the importance of computer science education, advice for school districts who want to bring computer science to their schools, and much more!
