2019 CSN Playground

Feedback: Mark Stehlik <> Cc: Erin Cawley <


Thanks, again, for enabling us (Erin, and our students, in particular), to showcase the CMU CS Academy at ISTE two weeks ago.  We got to chat with a lot of people (mostly due to the great location that our booth had!) and it was one of the best conference experiences CS Academy has had!  Thanks, again, for your help in support in making it so!
See you next year at SIGCSE, hopefully someplace warmer than Minnesota!
