Marysville Mountain View IGNITE students go to Bellevue IT Summit

Last week, 29 Marysville Mountain View IGNITE students attended Bellevue College IT Summit sponsored by the Center of Excellence for Information and Computing Technology. Students heard from a panel of speakers from Boeing, Best Buy, Bellevue College, Telligent, DreamBox Learning, and Microsoft. Students were able to network over breakfast and lunch with high school students from around Puget Sound. One of our MMVHS students walked away with the grand door prize – an Xbox 360 Kinect!
