Technology Career Days for SVVSD Tech Fair Winners

The elementary student winners of the 2008 SVVSD Student Technology Fair spent the morning at Channel 3 Public Access and KGUD (90.7 FM) radio station learning about technology in those environments. Not only did they tour the stations housed in the historical Carnegie Library building in Longmont, they were the featured guests in a video shoot and the voices you will hear on KGUD promoting next year's fair encouraging students to start now planning projects for 2009.

Thank you to everyone at Channel 3 Public Access and KGUD radio for providing this additional opportunity for learning about career opportunities using technology in the radio and television fields. Thank you to the many who volunteer there as well.

In about two months look for the television production to be shown. You might want to check the programming schedule. You should be able to hear the radio promotional running soon from now through February. I'll post a comment when we know exact times.

For those of you who missed the fair this year, the tv production will give you an opportunity to see the elementary winning projects. As the radio promo says, students and teachers start now planning your project. The Grand Champions won $1500 for technology for their school. Middle and High school students won up to $500 per entry for themselves!

"Seagate Day" is this coming Wednesday for the high school winners. They will see a "clean room", watch quality control as they shake, rattle and drop drives, hear about engineering careers, and see the assembly process. One lucky student will also win a 160GB FreeAgentGo (portable external drive). Will post a review of the day toward the end of next week. Until then . . . thanks for visiting!
