Tech Talks

During the project phase each student explores new technologies needed to bring their specifics idea to life. You'll dive into documentation and learn the nitty gritty through hands-on work. That new knowledge presents a teaching opportunity for you and your classmates. Each student gives a Tech Talk presentation to their own cohort, sharing their new expertise.
