“SYDCON believes in encouraging growth in Computer Science Education as well as empowering and encouraging women/girls in tech.”
Over the last few years, SYDCON has worked closely with our Community School District 155 on their GEMS (Girls in Engineering, Math & Science) program geared towards elementary and middle school girls. The GEMS program also provides a mentor program for high school girls in STEM.
In 2016-2017 school year, SYDCON became directly involved in Community High School District 155 and in specific Prairie Ridge High School and their pilot program called “Business Incubator”. We are directly involved in class projects, mentoring the entire class and working closely with a specific group in a coaching capacity to bring a product prototype to market. We provide programming, software and business guidance to high school juniors and seniors.
We have partnered with the community high school district to offer opportunities for students specifically interested in computer science and programming. We have allowed highly motivated and interested students to come in and participate in job shadowing where they have access to our team of expert developers to learn more about the exciting and challenging careers in tech.
Jennifer & Dave the owners of SYDCON firmly believe in the importance of giving back to the community as well as encouraging the growth and advancement of Computer Science Education in US students.
