" “I am blessed to be a part of the Millennium Fellowship because it provides me an opportunity to be a part of a network of like-minded students who want to make an impact in their community. I will draw inspiration and support from the Millennium Fellowship community who have shown their impact through their incredible amount of service. Through this fellowship, I hope to empower others and motivate students achieve the necessary skills to have early success in their career.” "
Millennium Fellowship Project: The Mexico Programming Initiative
My project is about The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA)/Texas students teaching Python to high school students in Mexico. The project timeline is 7 weeks; the first six weeks will be dedicated to teaching students the basics of Python and the last week students will have the opportunity to complete a capstone project, which will include a presentation and feedback on their code. The capstone project is to develop a game similar to rock, paper or scissors as it shows mastery of python basics.
