On Wednesday, May 17, 2017 the 1st Annual Mobile CSP Expo for the NY Metro area was held at North Shore Hebrew Academy High School in Great Neck, NY. Students who were enrolled in the Mobile CSP course during the 2016-2017 academic year were invited to demonstrate the apps they had created during the course under the guidance of trained Mobile CSP teachers. 22 students from two local high schools participated in the kickoff event. North Shore students were happy to welcome the students from Archbishop Molloy High School in Queens.
The Expo began with a welcome address from Mrs. Wilensky and from Ralph Walde, retired professor from Trinity College (the developers of Mobile CSP). Attendees had the opportunity to walk around the room and try out the various mobile apps during the showcase and voting period. After lunch, while votes were tallied and awards determined, participants demonstrated their apps to other faculty, staff and students at NSHAHS. The event concluded with closing remarks and presentation of awards.
