ARC-TS Systems Programmer Dan Barker, right, leads a tour of Pinckney High School students through the Michigan Academic Computing Center (MACC) in the spring of 2016. The students were from Cyndi Millns' Computer Networking and Security class. ARC-TS Associate Director Brock Palen had spoken to the class earlier in the school year. "I wanted them to see all the different possibilities available in the area," Millns said. "Hopefully it will spark an interest in some of the students."
