Daniel and I demonstrated some of web and mobile apps the USHS students will be creating this semester. Showed them how to use the cloud based developer tools and we talked about some of the NOOB pitfalls that are easy for first-time developers to fall into. The students had the chance to ask questions and learn, first hand, about the excitement of being part of this high-demand and highly creative STEAM career.
During the webinar, the students also learned about an international competition they may submit their apps to at the end of the semester in the hopes of bringing honors home to Union South.
Before we ended the student meeting Mr. DeLeon gave this shout out “I am proud of my students and so very grateful to our administration for making all of this possible at USHS.” Jaime is one of our favorite teachers we work with. Always friendly, gracious and does a great job inspiring his students.
Department of Labor stats tell us that there will be 1 million unfilled Computer Science jobs in the U.S. in 2020. Jaime wants to give his students every chance to try out the Computer Science STEAM career field.
Congrats to Mr. DeLeon and all his United South HS students for getting started in this exciting course.
Have fun – Steve
