Guess who came to Gwinnett? R&B singer and songwriter Ciara came to Paul Duke STEM High School in Norcross, Georgia as part of the Amazon Future Engineer contest for students.
Mixing creativity with computer programming, students at Paul Duke STEM High School have been learning to use Python, a general programming language, for a few weeks. During Ciara’s visit to the school, students used a free online program called Ear Sketch to edit their own version of two Ciara songs by using code.
The Amazon Future Engineer program allows contestants to submit their songs to be judged in competition with high school students across the country. Prizes include a trip to Seattle for a VIP “future engineer for a day” experience.
