A message from Stacey Johnson, President, East & Winter Park Campuses
Valencia’s East Campus Technology Club recently partnered with the Lake Nona Middle School Sixth Grade Coding Club to demonstrate the latest in information technology. Valencia students mentored and assisted with programming, animation and Web design on Tuesday, November 3, 2015.
Jerry Hensel, professor of computer programming/analysis, noted that this collaboration provided a wonderful learning opportunity for all.
“This is a great opportunity for Valencia students to get real world experience through mentoring, especially since most employers like to see some type of work experience from prospective employees,” said Jerry. ”This experience has provided East Campus IT students with valuable life lessons and the opportunity to work with area youth.”
The Technology Club plans to continue its volunteer partnership with Lake Nona Middle School in the coming semester, as Valencia students are earning volunteer hours.
