Synetra Provides Technology Education Camp for Students Passionate About Pursing Technology as a Career
DALLAS, TX – July 26, 2016 – Synetra recently held its second annual Technology Camp in Dallas for students from Presidio ISD. The week-long camp is designed to give attending students the opportunity to learn more about the possibilities of a career in technology and have educational experiences that they may not have had in their own community.
At Synetra Tech Camp students learn the foundation of technology. They start with the basics and get to see technology implemented throughout the city of Dallas. Synetra believes that students need to start with a solid foundation in hardware, learning components that make computers work, with hands-on learning about the computer configuration. As the week progresses, students learn about software, networking, unified communications, security, and virtualization. The camp is designed to be a well-rounded program, with fun and unique attractions and experiences that teach hands-on skills with technology and business insights.
Throughout the week, Synetra provided the students with behind the scenes access to business and technology in the Dallas region. Students toured Synetra’s data center and Cisco hosted the students for an executive demo and technology tour at their Richardson location. With a visit the University of Northern Texas, students were able to see how technology is used in the engineering school – from electrical engineering to chemical engineering to software design for gaming. Later in the week students went on tours of Texas Stadium and Texas Motor Speedway to experience many other technology components. “We want to help students that are passionate about technology see that many career options exist,” said Carmen Rubner, Technology Director for Presidio ISD. “If we can light a fire or start an idea in their head, that’s amazing,” said Douglas CoCo, Director of Support for Synetra.
Synetra intends to expand this program to other Texas schools in the hopes of inspiring more students to pursue careers in technology. “We are committed to Texas and our local communities. It is our goal to foster a love of technology and related careers from a young age” said President, Chris Winter. “Our dedicated Synetra team and our world-class partners make this phenomenal experience possible.” We thank our partners that helped to make our Technology Camp a success:
