EDUCATION PATHS AND CAREERS

Technology Portfolio

How do students show what they have accomplished in the technology fields of their interest? How do they describe their history and body of work? How can young people add to their experiences and understand where they want to add to or strengthen their skills, or how do they even know what else is even an option to learn and how it fits in?

In the arts and writing there are methods for developing a history and improving skills with guidance from teachers, and competitions to enter. In the technological arts there are few schools with the resources to provide physical resources and guidance to students to develop and document capabilities. Many advanced students create their own stories to share with colleges or potential employers, through blog sites and fortunate resources in the home.

Robotics And Beyond recognizes the void that exists for the vast majority of young people who want to pursue and develop interests in technology and who need to present their history and skills in effective ways. We are offering a program for students to create a plan for their own story through one-on-one and group discussions, blog sites and resumes, and a place to work on these projects. We also offer the opportunity for students to identify and pursue independent projects that expand their skill sets and broaden their knowledge of their fields of interest.

Independent Study

Do you have an idea for a science fair project? Are you a graduating high school Senior with a project requirement? Or just have a really cool idea for something you want to work on? We can help you rough out your idea, guide you and provide the space and tools needed to accomplish your project goals.
