SIM Cleveland Supports Northeast Ohio IT Education
High School Coding Camp
High School Coding Camp
One of the most rewarding aspects of being a member of the SIM Cleveland chapter is the support that we provide to the Northeast Ohio education community. Your membership dues and funds raised by our annual golf outing help to fund our education budget and outreach programs. This year SIM Cleveland contributed $16,400 to education outreach initiatives. Our contributions provided scholarships to students with STEM majors at Kent State University, Akron University, and Cleveland State University. We also contributed to tech initiatives in the Jefferson School District.
Most recently, SIM Cleveland supported RITE and TechCorps by sponsoring a High School Coding camp. The high school coding camp is a full-day, week-long experience designed to engage high school students in hands-on, technology learning experiences. SIM Cleveland’s sponsorship of this coding camp helps to expose high school students to technology and build the pipeline for future Northeast Ohio technology professionals.
SIM Cleveland members were present at the coding camp on the final day to see the projects they developed during the week. The students did an awesome job! They had great projects and you could see they really enjoyed their time at the camp and came away with some valuable coding skills. The parents of the students were there as well and they all expressed their gratitude for SIM Cleveland’s sponsorship of the camp. Below is a picture of the students who attended the camp that SIM Cleveland sponsored at the Tri-C Eastern campus. You are looking at our future Northeast Ohio technology and IT professionals. Our future is bright!
