CS4SF Visits Adobe!

November 16, 2011

On Friday, November 11, we were privileged to host a group of eager middle school girls from the Computer Science for San Francisco (CS4SF) program, their families, teacher assistants, and Computer Science professor EJ Jung from the University of San Francisco.

CS4SF is designed to introduce young women, specifically middle school students, to the opportunities available to them in the field of computer science. This program offers hands-on activities for students to learn programming, computer architecture, and networking.  A field trip to a high tech company in the Bay area is also scheduled at the end of each program. This semester, the group visited Adobe’s San Francisco campus.

Everyone really enjoyed the full agenda we had planned, including:

  • Presentations from female employees at Adobe with Computer Science degrees, Ming C., Sr. Experience Developer, and Kimen F., Sr. Product Manager. They shared their inspiring career stories and how they’re making an impact on innovation at Adobe.
  • Product demos of our latest Adobe Touch Apps on an Android tablet by Sr. Product Manager of Worldwide Education, John S.
  • A building tour of our San Francisco campus.

We also handed out Adobe Photoshop and Premiere Elements software to these students as the CS4SF curriculum includes an introduction to photo editing and video creation.
