And our Fantastic Student Assistants
Student Assistant's rule!
They are students currently enrolled in the computer science and robotics curricula or Leap Alums! They understand what you are experiencing, thoroughly know the subject matter in the courses, and are a great resource for feedback, guidance, instruction, counsel and all-around assistance. They are also very friendly and want to help.
