Tech Superstars in DCSD

Child at computer screen

Throughout Douglas County School District, students everyday are sharing their vision and passion for how technology can continue to shape and improve the world around us. Every month, we'll feature "Tech Superstars" in our district to showcase the exceptional young minds populating our schools.

Whether it's a batch of coding club students developing mobile apps for their schools, remote interfaces for homebound students, or working side-by-side with their school technical staff to contribute to support solutions for their location, we want to recognize many of these standouts.
