South Hills Community News Release

ALTOONA — Joshua Wakefield, Juniata Valley School District Director of Informational Technology, invited Information Technology (IT) program students from the Altoona Campus of South Hills School of Business & Technology to participate in a career day at the elementary school. The South Hills students gave demonstrations of several different technologies and equipment.

Around 80 elementary school students got to try out a drone using a flight simulator, watch a 3-D printer in action, watch programming demonstrations, see the internal components of a computer, and interact with a raspberry pi that was connected to various sensors and other basic electronics.

The purpose of this event was to spark an interest in the field of technology in the elementary school students as well as to give them an opportunity to learn what options are available to them as they continue their primary and secondary education in the Juniata Valley School District.
