Boreal Community Media, Cook County Higher Education and Cook County Schools ISD 166 Community Education have joined forces to create the first ever Student Technology Boot Camp in Cook County.
The Technology Boot Camp will be held for five days from August 5-9, 2019 at Cook County Higher Education.
Up to fifteen students grades 6 through 12 can enroll in the Boot Camp to gain hands on skills and learn about careers in the fields of technology. Fees for the Technology Camp will be $200 with financial assistance available through Cook County Higher Education’s workshop scholarship program.
The instructor for the Boot Camp will be Jon Bdrnard. Named 2017 Minnesota Educator of the Year by the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system, Joan Bernard currently teaches in the Computer Networking Department at Hennepin Technical College in the Twin Cities and holds several technology professional certifications. Joan earned a B.S. in mathematics and computer science and her Master’s in Education. She has over 24-years experience in the IT industry. In 2018, Bernard was recognized with the Dale P. Parnell Distinguished Faculty award by the American Association of Community Colleges. Joan is also the Lead IT Summer Trainer for Genesys Works in St Paul, a nonprofit organization providing pathways to career success for high school students in under-served communities through skills training, meaningful work experiences, and impactful relationships.
Assisting Ms. Bernard with the Technology Boot Camp will be David Blackburn, former Boreal and ISD 166 technology intern and graduate, who is now a computer science major at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. David will be sharing his technical work experiences with the Technology Boot Camp participants.
