2. Brazilian Exchange Students' wins: Three CCSF Computer Science Students on exchange from Brazil took top honors in recent "hackathons." These events are not about hacking, but about computer challenge problem solving in teams. The three students are being sponsored by the Brazilian Government's Science Without Borders Program (like our STEM). See the attached flier Brazil STEM Winners.pdf to learn more about Hackathons and these three winning students.


3. Follet Bookstore Scholarships: Sixty $100 book voucher awards will be given in the Fall 2014 semester to CCSF students who qualify. See the attached flier Follett Bookstore1 s14.pdf for more information -- eligibility and application process. Deadline for application is Wednesday, May 21st.


4. Art at CCSF (Summer inspirations): Are you looking for something new and colorful to add to your curriculum for the summer or fall, with Free Materials at no cost to the students? A great unit to include is an exploration of the great works of art we have at the Ocean campus and the Centers. The Rosenberg Library is also a great resource of primary source materials about the art that students can use for research. See the three attachments for more information. A great free resource on campus!
