OEC Sponsors 2 High School Summer Camps To Help Kids Learn To Code

The OEC sponsorship allowed participating students to access an interactive curriculum taught by two certified TECH CORPS instructors, a Camp Kit that included supplies and software, evaluations and assessments, training and ongoing support.

OEConnection LLC (OEC) sponsored a girls-only coding camp and a newly launched cybersecurity camp in partnership with TECH CORPS and RITE (Regional Information Technology Engagement). The OEC sponsorship allowed participating students to access an interactive curriculum taught by two certified TECH CORPS instructors, a Camp Kit that included supplies and software, evaluations and assessments, training and ongoing support.

OEC sponsored the girls-only coding camp, held on July 17-21, at Baldwin Wallace University, for a second consecutive year. Twenty high school girls attended the week-long camp designed to provide students with hands-on C# coding experience to learn computer programming concepts and skills.

New this year, the cybersecurity camp, held on July 24-28 at Cleveland State University, offered 20 students with coding experience the opportunity to participate in labs and challenges to recognize and identify cyber security vulnerabilities.

“The need for technology skills in the region continues to grow, as evidenced by the number of ongoing tech-related job openings, and we want to do whatever we can to mitigate the shortage of talent to fill those roles,” said Kathy Golden, OEC executive vice president and chief technology officer. “Sponsoring these coding camps, in partnership with TECH CORPS and RITE, is just one way we can empower young minds to pursue a rewarding future.”

“We are deeply grateful for OEC’s continued investment in the work of TECH CORPS,” said Lisa Chambers, TECH CORPS national executive director. “Partners like OEC provide TECH CORPS with the fuel to develop and deliver programs designed to support students’ curiosity and creativity through the lens of computer science.”

“Creating hands-on opportunities for high school students to develop critical job-related skills for a future career in IT is possible only with the support and participation of our corporate sponsors,” said Courtney DeOreo, director of RITE. “These companies don’t just sign checks. They agree to engage with the students, providing a much needed glimpse into what it means to be a software developer or information security specialist for a local company. This participation excites the students about the possibilities in the region and makes their learning real.”

This is the third year that OEC has sponsored the TECH CORPS and RITE coding camps.
