Students received certificates and provided a demonstration of the skills they learned. From the momentum Green Tech built through the RAILS grant, it was able to establish a group of six computer engineering mentors to work with youth every Saturday morning. This program provides students with hands-on coding experiences and links it to website development, animation, and computer graphics to capture their interest.
