6th Annual CyberCity Successful
The JMU College of Business opened its doors recently to about 40 8th, 9th, and 10th graders during the 6th annual CyberCity. This event gave the students a look at potential careers in a variety of areas, including computer information systems, cyber security, finance, and GIS. CyberCity was held June 20-23 in Zane Showker Hall. About 20 teachers also attended; they went to a separate track of classes, and learned how to better use technology in the classroom.
Since its inception in 2006, the program has reached more than 200 students and 100 teachers. In fact, this year two past participants returned as teachers, Eliot Barr and Whitney Brook.
Several new programs were offered this year, including a session on making good decisions, which was presented by a representative of the Central Intelligence Agency. Also new this year was a presentation on creative problem solving, presented by a Walmart industrial engineer, Jenae Moore. In this session, students were tasked with assembling robots out of Legos. They learned how to identify the problem, determine the best approach to solving it, and work together as a team to solve it.
Kate Stevens, with the Madison Art Collection, presented a new session for teachers on using museum resources to teach across the curriculum. The teachers divided into teams, chose a subject, and created a movie or cartoon using an IPad to tell the story.
In addition to the classroom session, the students experienced a bit of college life by staying in the dorms and eating in D Hall. One highlight of the program was the etiquette dinner for the students. Local etiquette expert Terrie Dean taught the students proper behavior for dining, including:
• How to fold a napkin in a lap
• Proper utensils to use during dinner
• How to pass the bread basket and the salt and pepper shakers
• How to put lemon and sugar in a glass of tea
Prior to dinner, Terrie also talked about the importance of one's personal brand -- how you see yourself and how others see you. Her takeaway message was, "Have a strong handshake." She reminded everyone that an impression is made in the first three seconds of meeting someone.
Plans are already underway for the 7th annual CyberCity. Click here to see pictures of the event.
