Coding Camp at SOCAlcatel-Lucent volunteers participated in a project at the Student Opportunity Center in November. Peter Burns of Alcatel-Lucent submitted the activity to the Alcatel-Lucent Foundation for award consideration during the company's Global Days of Caring (GDOC)campaign. The project was one of nine selected globally to receive an additional $2,000 to continue Alcatel-Lucent initiatives at the SOC.

The November project encouraged high school students to consider careers in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEaM). Alcatel-Lucent engineers Raymond Corral and Shri Balachandran provided 42 high school students with hands-on experience and the necessary resources and tools to become world-class computer programmers.
