My internship experience will benefit my mentor’s organization through promotion and exposure. Everyone at my school will hear about the Advanced Self-Powered Systems of Integrated Sensors and
Technologies (ASSIST) center and Textiles programs at NC State. I will definitely promote the programs to students and colleagues. I can’t wait to display my posters for the wearable device I created this summer in the hall by my classroom. I learned so many cool things this summer, I cant wait to share and collaborate with educators within my school and district. My CDC and CTE director have also promoted the Kenan Fellows program and the project I help develop throughout the Durham Public School System. Hopefully the extra exposure in Durham Public School will recruit and produce another cohort of exceptional fellows. I also hope to expose my students to potential career opportunities in coding, engineering, and textiles, possibly creating future ‘Wolf Pack” graduates.
