They volunteered their time to introduce computer science while seeing how the school is working to implement Michigan’s standards in technology.
According to Devin Duden, "These students can come up with the next great idea to solve an issue or problem. Kids of all ages can develop software. Parents and teachers need to promote technology careers."
It was exciting to host these IT professionals. Careers in technology include web/game designer, programmer, data/system administrator, business/system analyst, software/network/database engineer, data architect, and security architect. Computers are a big part of our daily lives. We encourage all Michigan teachers to host an 'Hour of Code' event at their local schools. Teachers across Michigan are working to integrate technology standards.
According to Darrin Deeter, "Software is becoming part of everything we use. We need more adventurous, creative, and detail orientated people who can understand it, design it, plan it, and build it."
