Our SYBAC students have had many active discussions with industry professionals the last few months.
In December, David Tominsky with NewBoCo discussed computer science and how their mission is to educate K-12 students to develop coding, engineering, and entrepreneurship skills. One initiative is to help certify a teacher to teach computer science in every school in Iowa. In December, the SYBAC group highlighted artificial intelligence and how the technology can help people.
In January our guest was Ryan Mulhall, who highlighted ICN’s cybersecurity services and procedures, along with job options in the technology field. The group discussed facial recognition and if their health data is at risk.
In February Scott Pappan met the students and explained ICN’s engineering and operations structure, Iowa’s 911 Network, our healthcare partnership with Iowa Hospital Association, and progress made to upgrade ICN’s Internet core. Student topics addressed broadband mapping, driverless cars, and how to talk about technology.
This year we also challenged the students to develop a concept that will address a technology problem or improve a technology process for their school or community. A few of their tech challenge ideas are below:
