Today we had a special treat in Geek Squad. I found out last Wednesday that one of my student’s had two uncles who worked for Disney Infinity. She had failed to mention this for nearly 1/2 of the year! Anyway her mother asked them if they would be willing to Skype with us and talk about their jobs.
Both Quinn and Troy answered questions about what they did and how they got into their jobs. One of the reasons I love talking to people in technology rich industries, but who aren’t coders, is for my Geeks to see all of the different types of jobs that are available to them. I could literally see the wheels turning in one of my Geek’s head as Quinn and Troy were talking about the different jobs that are involved in developing this game.
Bobby, who is in both clubs, said “The Skype was an amazing experience. I can’t wait to learn more during coding club.”
