Sentinel High School students interested in computer science should be rejoicing after Advance Technology Group donated $3,500 to MCPS STEAM Education. 

Daniel Land, Sentinel's computer science teacher, and Ted Fuller, the principal, accepted the check on behalf of the school and district this morning. 

Lande teaches three computer science courses at the school and launched the world's only Juniper Academic Alliance networking certification program for high school students. 

“Building these new programs meets student needs for challenge and rigor and it meets the job force needs of preparing students for careers in the technology sector as well as postsecondary education,” commented Mr. Fuller.

In mid-2016, ATG approached the district with their interest in supporting STEAM programs. 

Their newly created employee philanthropy committee determined that this year they could provide a $3,500 donation to MCPS. MCPS will use the funding to support the growth of computer science programs in the district.
