This summer has been amazing. During July, KidsTek had the pleasure of participating in the Aurora Youth 4 Success career exploration camp.
The camp opened each day with a “Lunch and Learn” session that consisted of community partners sharing information and wisdom about many different career paths. After lunch, our daily class focused on building meaningful relationships through team-building, group projects, and peer discussions. Lots of laughs and deep conversations were heard in our classroom.
KidsTek students conducted research on personality types and learning styles in order discover their temperament for various careers. They also developed their teamwork skills and public presentation skills. Our class learned about business ethics, how to build resumes and LinkedIn profiles, and other ways to market themselves as they transition into the workforce.
The KidsTek course came to an end with a field trip to the FORTRUST Data Center where students learned about cloud computing. And, at the culmination of the camp, each student received a laptop from KidsTek.
We couldn’t be happier with our group of students this summer, and we’ve been honored to be a part of this great program for the past eight years.
