CRi participated in UNO’s CodeCrush Fall 2017 Immersion Experience Event on Nov. 15. Our CEO, Sue Thaden, provided insights along with other leaders from the IT community on the IT Leaders Panel. The CodeCrush Immersion Experiences were created to show 8th and 9th-grade girls and their mentoring teachers the world of IT. For three days and four nights, the UNO College of Information Science and Technology inspires girls and their teachers to take a deeper look at IT through hands-on experiences with emerging IT fields such as bioinformatics, IT innovation, music technology and cybersecurity.
