Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

The purpose of this presentation is to show how valuable it is to students for schools to partner with companies in the community to inform, inspire, and motivate high potential students towards Information Technology Careers. The presentation will talk about how the program allows students to see first hand what it's like to work at a large, global corporation, to challenge students to use technology as a tool to solve current business problems. Finally, the presentation will discuss how as educators we see student success in the program by providing an opportunity for students to demonstrate their improved skill sets by presenting to J & J executives and school administrators.
