On Tuesday, February 26 the Little Rock Zoo will be hosting 100+ students for a new hackathon called “Zoo EXCEL-athon”. LRSD’s EXCEL students will be competing to develop a technology related solution to a conservation problem with awards going to the top three teams. The event planning team even includes EXCEL teacher cadets (students from LRSD high schools)! Little Rock Mayor Frank Scott, Jr. will be providing opening remarks followed by Superintendent Michael Poore with additional special guests also in attendance.
It would be great to see you if you are able to attend! The event will open at 9:30am and end at 2:30pm. If you are available, please let me know if there is a portion (or all) of the event that you would like to attend and I can provide you with further details.
