DURHAM – The Oyster River Cooperative School District is pleased to share that 16 Oyster River High School students have been inducted into the National Computer Science Honor Society.
Oyster River High School’s Coding Club, CodeRunners, has been working hard these past few months to bring this amazing opportunity to students interested in the field of Computer Science.
The Society is sponsored by the Computer Science Teachers of America, and encourages enthusiasm for computer science, advances equity by recognizing that all students have the potential to excel in computing, and promotes service.
Students inducted on Dec. 15 were: Maya Ajit, Marcus Anderson, John Caparso, Dominic Couture, Courtney Giroux, Mihira Govindarajula, Cindy Han, Deepthi Onkaram, Liam Meredith, Michael Mo, Annika Pant, Raghavan Rajkumar, Kai Sowers, Zane Vaughn, Kelly Zhang, and Maggie Zhang. Students represent the Class of 2023, Class of 2024, and Class of 2025.
Under the guidance of Computer Science Teacher Cathi Stetson, they have demonstrated a high level of excellence in computer science and will complete 10 hours of related volunteerism.
Students have already volunteered with the annual Coding and Cocoa program, held on Dec. 7, sharing their expertise with other students to foster interest in STEAM pathways for all District students. Students are also teaching HTML coding at Mast Way Elementary School, serving as mentors for younger students.
