Canyon Crest Academy’s Girls Who Code club and the affiliated all-girls Ravenettes robotics team wrapped up a productive year with several remote-learning programs to provide STEM education to students in the San Dieguito School District during the pandemic. Led by graduating seniors Samantha Prestrelski (president) and Alexis Wu (vice president), the CCA Girls Who Code team started moving their educational outreach programs online when school closed in March 2020.
