Los Altos High junior Anyka Chan, center, helps fifth-graders at Santa Rita School during a Computer Engineers of the Next Generation after-school class last week. The organization, run by Los Altos High students, provides free computer science courses in local schools.
With the goal to offer free computer science courses to kids at a young age, a group of Los Altos High School students launched Computer Engineers of the Next Generation.
The group of nine students offers the after-school classes to local fifth-graders with the aim of creating a diverse workforce of computer engineers for the next generation.
