Mission Statement

Our mission is to inspire and educate students in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) careers. Through a collaboration with the community, education, government and the technology industry, WCTD provides awareness and education of the 21st Century workforce skills, as well as the opportunities available to students embracing STEAM careers. Impacting students at a local, national and global level, our programs create a hunger for learning that empowers students to find their own paths to success.

Description

The skills needed to succeed in todays complicated work environments challenge employers to find the resources with the right skills to be successful. We Connect The Dots will provide the necessary work skills needed for students to build strong careers in STEAM roles. By engaging in a partnership with communities, industry leaders, students and teachers, we will reduce the number of jobs that are filled by students outside the US. Creating a greater awareness to parents and students of the career possibilities and the skills necessary to succeed. Through an accelerated program and project based learning students will gain the experience that matches todays real world careers.

I don't remember the exact date of the event but it wasn't a bad weekend. A little less structured than I am used to but from what I gathered zoom and Microsoft Teams was still new to the ladies leading the organization. The leaders were a bit abrasive and I personally thought it could've been more organized but that was probably my USAF structure over critiquing it. I personally felt like I had little input and the events were rushed. I ended up being partnered with a group of kids and didn't get much time for guidance, more of a role to just make sure they are attempting to do what they needed to do. It was cool to see some of the stuff the kids made though. And apparently there were like 19K in scholarships that were given out which is great. I didn't learn that until after I checked in on the company and their annual results.

WCTD is true to its mission. It has invested people who run the program, and I got to see the students being changed at the end of the STEAM 2020 program.
