Why Choose a Tech College?

Sometimes we think that universities are the ONLY route to success. However, our local Tech Colleges are a great resource for students! Even if you continue onto college, a job certification earned at Davis Tech or OTech can be a great part time job while you earn a Bachelor's Degree.

It all comes down to WHAT JOB YOU WANT in the future! Do what makes you happy!

Benefits to a Technical Education/Job Certifications:

  • Short term training (some 6-13 months) vs 4+ years of college
  • Tuition is WAIVED during high school, so it can nearly free
  • Can be part of your NUAMES schedule (maybe here one day, at tech college the next)
  • STACK YOUR CREDENTIALS! Then when you leave college, you can have certificates, work experience in that field AND a degree
  • Some careers don't even require a university degree and pay really good!
  • Some bachelor's programs require certifications before you can be accepted
  • Example: Nursing students should get their CNA certificate and sometimes even LPN certificate before colleges will take you as a nursing student.

What is SheTech?

SheTech Explorer Day is a hands-on tech conference for high school girls from grades 9th through 12th. This day-long event will include hands-on workshops in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Our ultimate goal is to expose girls to technology in a fun atmosphere while they meet STEM role models to learn more about opportunities in those fields. Girls who attend will have access to internships, receive a SheTech certificate, access pathway information, and become part of a community that provides girls have opportunities in STEM.

The day is tech interactive and enables girls to experience, innovate and create. Girls start in the morning with working sessions where they explore tech, such as robotics, computer programming, digital media, health, and microbiology. They then hear from inspirational females and industry visionaries. In the afternoon, the girls experience the TechChallenge where they work with industry mentors to ideate, solve and pitch their solutions.

This year’s workshops include:

  • > Programming
  • > Engineering
  • > Aerospace
  • > Robotics
  • > Product Invention & Entrepreneurship
  • > Biomedicine
  • > Web, Digital Marketing, Ecommerce, and User Experience
  • > Gaming, Esports, VR
  • > Science in Tech (e.g. chemistry, formulation, materials)

SheTech Next Steps
