On June 1 Browning's technology department held a Tech Expo in the Kurani Gym to highlight the School's comprehensive and engaging tech program. Projects from all tech classes (Pre-primary through advanced computer science), were presented to the boys, parents and faculty. Director of Academic Technology Saber Khan provides the following report:

Projects included the first graders' Lego soccer game controlled by computer program; 3D virtual reality by Form II boys; and independently developed websites from Form V boys. In the middle of the gym, the robotics class set up a game arena where two "bots" built and programmed by Form IV boys competed in the afternoon.

In the evening, tech department members hosted a cocktail party in the cafeteria for computer science educators from across the city, including Michael Preston, the head of New York's computer science (CS) initiative. Mr. Preston spoke about the city's plans to bring CS education to all one million students as a part of the "CS for All" plan. Such events highlight the ways in which Browning is at the forefront of technology education in NYC.
