IT/Networking Students Demonstrated Their Business Skills at Business Day
Wednesday, May 27, 2015
Career and Technical Education students were among the nearly 300 area high school business students representing 12 school districts who demonstrated their business skills and knowledge at the 22nd annual Adirondack Business Educators/SUNY Adirondack High School Business Day on Tuesday, May 5.
Students in both the Information Technology/Networking class at the F. Donald Myers Education Center and through the SUNY Adirondack Career Academy participated in the SUNY Adirondack Business Day program.
The event was co-sponsored by the SUNY Adirondack Business Division and Adirondack Business Educators, a consortium of high school business teachers with SUNY Adirondack’s service area.
Students were required to complete tasks related to business principles, applications, presentation, and professionalism during structured competitions. Tests were given in such subject areas as marketing, accounting, economics, finance, business law, computer literacy, and computer networking. Students also competed in a CISCO IT Networking Quiz Bowl, Computer Quiz Bowl, CISCO Cable Making and PC Computer Assembly.
The theme of this year’s event was “N vest N ur Future.”
Here’s how our students placed in the various competitions:
The IT/Networking program is transitioning to being only offered as a SUNY Adirondack Career Academy program. The IT/Networking pathway is a two-year, half-day sequence for high school juniors and seniors that is co-taught by SUNY Adirondack professors and a WSWHE BOCES CTE instructor. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fundamentals are taught in a connected, collaborative environment using project-based learning. Students have the opportunity to earn up to 28 college credits.
