Experience Programming in Quorum (EPIQ)
The Experience Programming in Quorum (EPIQ) conference is an international professional development workshop for educators to learn the foundational skills necessary to teach students computer science using the Quorum programming language. Quorum is a fully accessible evidence-based programming tool used for creating accessible gaming experiences, building robots, and so much more. This program empowers teachers to improve access to computer science learning for youth who are blind.
PAC President, Sina Bahram, has attended EPIQ since 2010, sat on the EPIQ Steering Committee since 2014, and is a recent member of the Quorum Outreach and Research Foundation board. Sina provides strategic insight to the conference, teaches classes, and is well known for his yearly talks and tech demos in which he presents a project he has constructed that week with the newest Quorum tools. EPIQ was started in 2010 as part of a National Science Foundation funded project (CNS-0940521).
