Caelus Computing


After seeing as all schools in Virginia were closed amidst the global pandemic, we created Caelus Computing to keep all of us students in touch with basic academic skills! Over the course of several months starting in April 2020, Project Caelus has partnered with nonprofit Youth for Sewa to run free, online, one-on-one tutoring sessions for students in grades 1 - 10 in math, science, or computer science.
