The immersion portion of Tech it Out is an eight-week prorgram where students come to the University of Pennsylvania and create a website that addresses a social issue they find important. On Sundays, we meet from 1-3pm. We build web development skills, research social issues, work in teams, and develop presentation skills. We have guest speakers to learn more about careers and opportunities in computer science. At the end of the program, we celebrate our hard work at a fun launch party hosted by a Philly start up. This program accepts about 15 students.
The internship portion of Tech it Out is for graduates of our immersion program. Tech it Out offers internship positions that fulfil a variety of roles.
1: the intern can join our immersion program as a student teacher. They act as a mentor to the new students, help research, and help organize the program.
2: the intern can help create a Tech it Out program at their high school. They will help us establish a program, recruit 10 students, and coordinate communications between the school and the mentors working with the program.
3: the intern will also show off their new skills by building a new website from scratch on a new topic
4: the intern will have weekly meetings outside of the scheduled tech it out times in order to facillitate these goals
