More information about Teen Summit

Tacoma, July 9, 2014 – 2 youth leaders from the Computer Clubhouse of Tacoma are heading to Boston, Massachusetts, in July to join nearly 200 other young people for the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network’s 2014 Teen Summit. Youth from 18 countries including India, Jordan, Israel, Ireland, South Africa, New Zealand, Brazil, and the United States will be in Boston from July 29th-August 3rd to explore using technology to make positive change and stand up for youth rights in issues such as education, environment, freedom & safety, health, and speech & expression.
These youth ambassadors, Jade Hicks and Alliyah Peoples, were chosen for their outstanding peer leadership and efforts to give back to their community. Jade and Alliyah, both juniors at Stadium High School, began attending the Computer Clubhouse when they were in middle school. After the sudden passing of former director, Dr. Luversa Sullivan, both girls stopped attending. Within the past year, both girls have returned, and thrived as peer mentors. Jade can usually be found in the music studio recording music or the Make It! Lab teaching LEGO robotics. Alliyah is always coming up with ideas of how to put her new found love of coding to use whether it’s creating a Seahawks animation in Scratch, or creating a 3D game in Alice.

Fun On The Field Trip!!

Today the Tacoma Computer Clubhouse went on an amazing field trip! We visited the Apple Store, they showed us some of their software (iMovie). We were then challenged to make videos on how we personally, can make a difference in the world. We also were given free T-shirts and some “filthy” Hard-Drives. Then, after departing from the Apple Store, we visited the tacoma art museum! There we looked at art work of course, analized self portraits, made our own self portraits, and involved our selves in making other art work. Check out all of the photos from today on our flickr. Overall it was a great day everyone here at the Tacoma Computer Clubhouse had fun, and we all challenged our brains and learned new things! In the next few months we will be working on digital story telling.

Clubhouse!!
