Exposure is everything! Here at INTech, we find it extremely important for INTech Scholars to learn about the foundation of Computer Science and Technology. Beyond mobile apps and tablets, we would like for INTech Scholars to know about other forms of technology. What are programming languages? What does it mean to think logically? This is what we want INTech Scholars to take away.
Hearing about someone else’s journey is always helpful. We bring in industry women who have technology backgrounds to share with INTech Scholars about their experiences and their paths. We at INTech know that the road to success is not straight so we want INTech Scholars to know that there are many ways that they can use technology to get to where they want to go. INTech inspirers are asked to share the life path that led them to technology, their favorite projects, and give advice to INTech Scholars.
In addition to Computer Science knowledge, we also want our INTech Scholars to know about the women who have pioneered their way through technology and leadership. Throughout the day, the girls see a powerpoint with information about trailblazers in the technology field.
The most exciting part of the INTech Camp is the innovation. INTech scholars are grouped together in teams to learn how to build technology solutions. Through this, they are able to learn the importance of paired programming. They are also assigned a mentor who is either in college or the technology industry to help them troubleshoot any areas that they have. Once the innovation is over, the INTech Scholars prepare presentations in which they report out to their parents about what they have learned.
