Huge shout-out to Mrs. Payne for her hard work, enthusiasm and passion for BCS students. She continuously challenges the students in the 21st century program to aim high and dare to be great!  Check out the video and photos from our makerspace. Our students have been able to build their own personal computers. Now that's what I am talking about. #stemeducation #computerscience #21stcenturylearning #teamworkmakesthedreamwork
