Tech Learning Powers Up: Students Decode the Digital world

Tech Learning Powers Up: Students Decode the Digital world

Dynamic Learning

The 2024 Computing Career Corps (CCC) program embarks on a promising journey, setting the stage for a dynamic learning experience that will continue weekly through May. Our rockstar team and more than 70 enthusiastic high school students engage in hands-on tech as learning powers up. 

Students use the fundamentals of coding to create projects. They apply web and mobile app principles to create interactive applications. By demonstrating how software and hardware components interact, students create 3D products! 

Personal Instruction

Many returning students enthusiastically flood the program. They are thrilled to reunite with familiar faces, namely TECH CORPS staff, Ally, Genesis, and Roger. Ally and Genesis, acclaimed for their strength and patience, demonstrate an impressive knack for recognizing individual student needs. They provide tailored assistance for students as their tech learning powers up. Meanwhile, the adept site coordinator, Roger, is poised to hold the reins. He maintains program cohesion in the upcoming months, adding a fantastic presence to the classroom dynamics.

In the early weeks, the program focuses on student introductions, program norms, and behavioral expectations. Rather than diving into the curriculum, the emphasis is on learning to work as a team. Students enjoy short games and group discussions. Parents turned out to drop off their students, seizing the opportunity to meet instructors and gain insights into their children’s learning environment.

Community Support

The program is hosted at three locations: the TECH CORPS office, Horizon Science Academy, and Franklin Heights High School (SWCS). Our gracious hosts, Sherri Camden from SWCS and Muride Cakir, the guidance counselor at Horizon, offer invaluable support. The collaboration between CCC and the host sites lays a strong foundation for an enriching learning experience in the weeks to come. 

We are also grateful to our program sponsor. Computing Career Corps is funded by the Franklin County Board of Commissioners and administered by the Franklin County Department of Job & Family Services. 

We’re excited to share regular updates on CCC students’ progress in the coming weeks.

Through several hands-on lessons and activities, Computing Career Corps introduces students to a variety of in-demand occupations in the field of technology including computer programming, software engineering, robotics, 3D printing and app development. Students gain a solid understanding of the inner workings of technology and use their newly acquired skills and creativity to develop solutions and products.
