Ignite Labs hosts weekly Scratch and Python classes for young children interested in computer science and programming as well as hackathons for elementary students and middle school students.

In August, NorCal House of Chess hosted Phiona Mutesi, the chess star from Uganda who battled through poverty and adversity. Disney made a poignant, unadulterated biographical movie about her, Queen of Katwe, in 2017, recounting her trials and tribulations and how she triumphed and succeeded in several chess tournaments and national competitions. I had the privilege to work with Phiona at the NorCal summer chess camps and to play against her in a simul event (in which I miraculously won)!
