We are very excited to announce our newest program, Next Generation Tech.
The Next Generation Tech Program provides low-income students the technical knowledge they need to be successful in the 21st Century and to build the organizational and leadership skills they need to thrive in school and in the workforce.
The Middle School Scholars program will focus on use of the internet, Microsoft Office applications, robotics, iMovie and HTML. The High School Scholars will concentrate on the 7 core concepts that are tested on the new AP Computer Science Principles exam, in addition to learning Java and Python for the AP Computer Science A exam.
Students will work on projects that allow them to learn media studies and media production for the digital age. This curriculum will be project based and progressive such that students work collectively on assignments and projects. There will be a combination of class time and lab time.
Through these classes, students will gain workforce development skills and learn the soft skills necessary to be competitive in the job market. Students will have the opportunity to complete internships in technology, film, media, and other disciplines.
