“I congratulate Antwon Lamon, an honor student and recent CPS Washington High School graduate, and his team Ballet Palla on exhibiting their award-winning 3D game, Ballers Life, at the White House Maker Faire. Preparing students for careers in math and science is one of the greatest legacies we can leave our children. Antwon’s accomplishments highlight why the City of Chicago will continue to invest in programs like Chicago City of Learning, STEM education, the Chicago Public Libraries Maker Space and College to Careers to help shape the next generation of builders and innovators.”
