Killexams : Colorado’s P-TECH Students Graduate Ready for Tech Careers (TNS) — Abraham Tinajero was an eighth grader when he saw a poster in his Longmont middle school’s library advertising a new program offering free college with a technology focus.

Interested, he talked to a counselor to learn more about P-TECH, an early college program where he could earn an associate’s degree along with his high school diploma. Liking the sound of the program, he enrolled in the inaugural P-TECH class as a freshman at Longmont’s Skyline High School.

“I really loved working on computers, even before P-TECH,” he said. “I was a hobbyist. P-TECH gave me a pathway.”


He worked with an IBM mentor and interned at the company for six weeks as a junior. After graduating in 2020 with his high school diploma and the promised associate’s degree in computer science from Front Range Community College, he was accepted to IBM’s yearlong, paid apprenticeship program.

IBM hired him as a cybersecurity analyst once he completed the apprenticeship.

“P-TECH has given me a great advantage,” he said. “Without it, I would have been questioning whether to go into college. Having a college degree at 18 is great to put on a resume.”


Stanley Litow, a former vice president of IBM, developed the P-TECH, or Pathways in Technology Early College High Schools, model. The first P-TECH school opened 11 years ago in Brooklyn, New York, in partnership with IBM.

Litow’s idea was to get more underrepresented young people into tech careers by giving them a direct path to college while in high school — and in turn create a pipeline of employees with the job skills businesses were starting to value over four-year college degrees.

The program, which includes mentors and internships provided by business partners, gives high school students up to six years to earn an associate's degree at no cost.

SKYLINE HIGH A PIONEER IN PROGRAM

In Colorado, St. Vrain Valley was among the first school districts chosen by the state to offer a P-TECH program after the Legislature passed a bill to provide funding — and the school district has embraced the program.

Colorado’s first P-TECH programs started in the fall of 2016 at three high schools, including Skyline High. Over the last six years, 17 more Colorado high schools have adopted P-TECH, for at total of 20. Three of those are in St. Vrain Valley, with a fourth planned to open in the fall of 2023 at Longmont High School.

Each St. Vrain Valley high school offers a different focus supported by different industry partners.

Skyline partners with IBM, with students earning an associate’s degree in Computer Information Systems from Front Range. Along with being the first, Skyline’s program is the largest, enrolling up to 55 new freshmen each year.

Programs at the other schools are capped at 35 students per grade.

Frederick High’s program, which started in the fall of 2019, has a bioscience focus, partners with Aims Community College and works with industry partners Agilent Technologies, Tolmar, KBI Biopharma, AGC Biologics and Corden Pharma.

Silver Creek High’s program started a year ago with a cybersecurity focus. The Longmont school partners with Front Range and works with industry partners Seagate, Cisco, PEAK Resources and Comcast.

The new program coming to Longmont High will focus on business.

District leaders point to Skyline High’s graduation statistics to illustrate the program’s success. At Skyline, 100 percent of students in the first three P-TECH graduating classes earned a high school diploma in four years.

For the 2020 Skyline P-TECH graduates, 24 of the 33, or about 70 percent, also earned associate’s degrees. For the 2021 graduating class, 30 of the 47 have associate’s degrees — with one year left for those students to complete the college requirements.

For the most recent 2022 graduates, who have two years left to complete the college requirements, 19 of 59 have associate’s degrees and another six are on track to earn their degrees by the end of the summer.

JUMPING AT AN OPPORTUNITY

Louise March, Skyline High’s P-TECH counselor, keeps in touch with the graduates, saying 27 are working part time or full time at IBM. About a third are continuing their education at a four year college. Of the 19 who graduated in 2022 with an associate’s degree, 17 are enrolling at a four year college, she said.

Two of those 2022 graduates are Anahi Sarmiento, who is headed to the University of Colorado Boulder’s Leeds School of Business, and Jose Ivarra, who will study computer science at Colorado State University.

“I’m the oldest out of three siblings,” Ivarra said. “When you hear that someone wants to give you free college in high school, you take it. I jumped at the opportunity.”

Sarmiento added that her parents, who are immigrants, are already working two jobs and don’t have extra money for college costs.

“P-TECH is pushing me forward,” she said. “I know my parents want me to have a better life, but I want them to have a better life, too. Going into high school, I kept that mentality that I would push myself to my full potential. It kept me motivated.”

While the program requires hard work, the two graduates said, they still enjoyed high school and had outside interests. Ivarra was a varsity football player who was named player of the year. Sarmiento took advantage of multiple opportunities, from helping elementary students learn robotics to working at the district’s Innovation Center.

Ivarra said he likes that P-TECH has the same high expectations for all students, no matter their backgrounds, and gives them support in any areas where they need help. Spanish is his first language and, while math came naturally, language arts was more challenging.

“It was tough for me to see all these classmates use all these big words, and I didn’t know them,” he said. “I just felt less. When I went into P-TECH, the teachers focus on you so much, checking on every single student.”

They said it’s OK to struggle or even fail. Ivarra said he failed a tough class during the pandemic, but was able to retake it and passed. Both credited March, their counselor, with providing unending support as they navigated high school and college classes.

“She’s always there for you,” Sarmiento said. “It’s hard to be on top of everything. You have someone to go to.”

Students also supported each other.

“You build bonds,” Ivarra said. “You’re all trying to figure out these classes. You grow together. It’s a bunch of people who want to succeed. The people that surround you in P-TECH, they push you to be better.”

SUPPORT SYSTEMS ARE KEY

P-TECH has no entrance requirements or prerequisite classes. You don’t need to be a top student, have taken advanced math or have a background in technology.

With students starting the rigorous program with a wide range of skills, teachers and counselors said, they quickly figured out the program needed stronger support systems.

March said freshmen in the first P-TECH class struggled that first semester, prompting the creation of a guided study class. The every other day, hour-and-a-half class includes both study time and time to learn workplace skills, including writing a resume and interviewing. Teachers also offer tutoring twice a week after school.

“The guided study has become crucial to the success of the program,” March said.

Another way P-TECH provides extra support is through summer orientation programs for incoming freshmen.

At Skyline, ninth graders take a three-week bridge class — worth half a credit — that includes learning good study habits. They also meet IBM mentors and take a field trip to Front Range Community College.

“They get their college ID before they get their high school ID,” March said.

During a session in June, 15 IBM mentors helped the students program a Sphero robot to travel along different track configurations. Kathleen Schuster, who has volunteered as an IBM mentor since the P-TECH program started here, said she wants to “return some of the favors I got when I was younger.”

“Even this play stuff with the Spheros, it’s teaching them teamwork and a little computing,” she said. “Hopefully, through P-TECH, they will learn what it takes to work in a tech job.”

Incoming Skyline freshman Blake Baker said he found a passion for programming at Trail Ridge Middle and saw P-TECH as a way to capitalize on that passion.

“I really love that they give you options and a path,” he said.

Trail Ridge classmate Itzel Pereyra, another programming enthusiast, heard about P-TECH from her older brother.

“It’s really good for my future,” she said. “It’s an exciting moment, starting the program. It will just help you with everything.”

While some of the incoming ninth graders shared dreams of technology careers, others see P-TECH as a good foundation to pursue other dreams.

Skyline incoming ninth grader Marisol Sanchez wants to become a traveling nurse, demonstrating technology and new skills to other nurses. She added that the summer orientation sessions are a good introduction, helping calm the nerves that accompany combining high school and college.

“There’s a lot of team building,” she said. “It’s getting us all stronger together as a group and introducing everyone.”

THE SPARK OF MOTIVATION

Silver Creek’s June camp for incoming ninth graders included field trips to visit Cisco, Seagate, PEAK Resources, Comcast and Front Range Community College.

During the Front Range Community College field trip, the students heard from Front Range staff members before going on a scavenger hunt. Groups took photos to prove they completed tasks, snapping pictures of ceramic pieces near the art rooms, the most expensive tech product for sale in the bookstore and administrative offices across the street from the main building.

Emma Horton, an incoming freshman, took a cybersecurity class as a Flagstaff Academy eighth grader that hooked her on the idea of technology as a career.

“I’m really excited about the experience I will be getting in P-TECH,’ she said. “I’ve never been super motivated in school, but with something I’m really interested in, it becomes easier.”

Deb Craven, dean of instruction at Front Range’s Boulder County campus, promised the Silver Creek students that the college would support them. She also gave them some advice.

“You need to advocate and ask for help,” she said. “These two things are going to help you the most. Be present, be engaged, work together and lean on each other.”

Craven, who oversees Front Range’s P-TECH program partnership, said Front Range leaders toured the original P-TECH program in New York along with St. Vrain and IBM leaders in preparation for bringing P-TECH here.

“Having IBM as a partner as we started the program was really helpful,” she said.

When the program began, she said, freshmen took a more advanced technology class as their first college class. Now, she said, they start with a more fundamental class in the spring of their freshman year, learning how to build a computer.

“These guys have a chance to grow into the high school environment before we stick them in a college class,” she said.

Summer opportunities aren’t just for P-TECH’s freshmen. Along with summer internships, the schools and community colleges offer summer classes.

Silver Creek incoming 10th graders, for example, could take a personal financial literacy class at Silver Creek in the mornings and an introduction to cybersecurity class at the Innovation Center in the afternoons in June.

Over at Skyline, incoming 10th graders in P-TECH are getting paid to teach STEM lessons to elementary students while earning high school credit. Students in the fifth or sixth year of the program also had the option of taking computer science and algebra classes at Front Range.

EMBRACING THE CHALLENGE

And at Frederick, incoming juniors are taking an introduction to manufacturing class at the district's Career Elevation and Technology Center this month in preparation for an advanced manufacturing class they’re taking in the fall.

“This will give them a head start for the fall,” said instructor Chester Clark.

Incoming Frederick junior Destini Johnson said she’s not sure what she wants to do after high school, but believes the opportunities offered by P-TECH will prepare her for the future.

“I wanted to try something challenging, and getting a head start on college can only help,” she said. “It’s really incredible that I’m already halfway done with an associate’s degree and high school.”

IBM P-TECH program manager Tracy Knick, who has worked with the Skyline High program for three years, said it takes a strong commitment from all the partners — the school district, IBM and Front Range — to make the program work.

“It’s not an easy model,” she said. “When you say there are no entrance requirements, we all have to be OK with that and support the students to be successful.”

IBM hosted 60 St. Vrain interns this summer, while two Skyline students work as IBM “co-ops” — a national program — to assist with the P-TECH program.

The company hosts two to four formal events for the students each year to work on professional and technical skills, while IBM mentors provide tutoring in algebra. During the pandemic, IBM also paid for subscriptions to tutor.com so students could get immediate help while taking online classes.

“We want to get them truly workforce ready,” Knick said. “They’re not IBM-only skills we’re teaching. Even though they choose a pathway, they can really do anything.”

As the program continues to expand in the district, she said, her wish is for more businesses to recognize the value of P-TECH.

“These students have had intensive training on professional skills,” she said. “They have taken college classes enhanced with the same digital credentials that an IBM employee can learn. There should be a waiting list of employers for these really talented and skilled young professionals.”

Killexams : IBM Watson Helps Create Sculpture Inspired by Gaudi

Watson is already very good at recognizing images. Drop in an image of a building and it will tell you the type of building and even what materials it's likely made of. But New York City-based design studio SOFTlab wanted to know if Watson could do more than just recognize art. Could Watson help create it?

It turns out it can. IBM is calling it the first “thinking sculpture” – an art piece that helped pick its own materials, shapes, and colors.

Antoni Gaudí was a 19th century Spanish architect whose avant-garde work has become synonymous with the look and feel of Barcelona. Inspired by naturally-occurring forms, Gaudí was known for his unique treatment of materials, including ceramics, that has given his pieces, including his most well-known work – the Sagrada Família – their distinctive look.

As MWC 2017 is being held in Barcelona this week, SOFTlab decided creating a sculpture inspired by Gaudí's work would be the perfect task to set Watson to for the event. The team at SOFTlab fed Watson a plethora of academic and artistic work around Gaudí and the city of Barcelona, including images, articles, literature, and even music – teaching it to become an expert on Gaudi and his design process. From there Watson was able to identify themes and patterns in Gaudi's work, including his use of materials, and was then able to suggest designs based on its knowledge.

Watson was able to recognize structures, elements, and features in [Gaudí's] art and his work,” Jonas Nwuke, Manager, IBM Watson, told Design News. “It gets to the essence of an image and when it looks at another it tries to make sense of that image through what it's been taught.”

Essentially by teaching Watson the difference between two categories (i.e. an image of a Gaudí structure and a non-Gaudí structure), via its Visual Recognition API, Watson is able to learn the difference between the two. The more examples it has, the better it gets. It can then take in new images and figure out what category they belong in. The other half was performed by Watson's AlchemyLanguage API, which analyzes text and language for keywords, taxonomy, and concepts that it is taught. Again, the more text about Gaudí the system is exposed to, the better it gets at recognizing words, phrases, and even emotions associated with his work.

While certain patterns in Gaudí's structures, such as waves and arches, would be clear to any architect well-versed in his work, Watson was also able to draw on its existing database and find less obvious connections in forms found in things like crabs, spiders, shells, and even candies. It also helped the designers with their material selection based on their criteria, helping them to arrive at the color scheme (ultramarine blue, jade green, yellow and orange) as well as the the iridescent dichroic film material used throughout the sculpture.

As an added layer, the sculpture is also being fed social media data from MWC attendees via Twitter and it is able to move and reshape itself based on the emotions it reads from the tweets by utilizing Watson's Tone Analyzer API.

“As we've opened up the Watson platform for developers and makers what we found was there were some creative pursuits that presented themselves,” Nwuke said. “Our engineering team got involved in creating food recipes, music, fashion, even movie trailers ... 2017 has become the year that we are going to see what Watson can do in the architectural field.”

Nwuke said a lot what IBM looks at when bringing Watson into the real world is very constrained. This collaboration with SOFTlab presented an opportunity to see how well Watson could be applied to a purely creative endeavour. And though this particular instance was centered around Gaudi, Nwuke added that Watson could be trained in expertise in any artist and could even be trained on multiple artists in order to mix and match influences.

The same concept could be extended into areas of design including product engineering. Perhaps a design engineer wants to create a product inspired by a certain artist, form, or even other product, or maybe they're looking to find patterns and associations in existing product designs. Watson could be taught to become an expert on a particular product and design and assist engineers in the design process, including material selection.

READ MORE ARTICLES ON ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE:

Nwuke pointed to another project, OmniEarth as an example of how robust and flexible Watson's visual recognition is. OmniEarth is leveraging Watson's services to analyze satellite images for water conversation, by being able to classify irrigable, irrigated and non-irrigated areas, agricultural zones, lawns, and even swimming pools.

But the goal is not to have Watson design something, according to Nwuke. It's part of an initiative IBM is calling “augmented intelligence.” “The endgame is not to replace [architects], it's to provide a way to augment them,” Nwuke said.

Chris Wiltz is the Managing Editor of Design News.

UTSA’s HPC research infrastructure featured as model at D.C. conference

Kendra Ketchum (left), UTSA CIO and vice president for information management and technology, spoke about the importance of partnerships to drive digital transformation alongside NIST Director and Undersecretary of Commerce Laurie Locascio (right) at the Government University Industry Research Roundtable in Washington, D.C.

AUGUST 2, 2022 — Select UTSA senior leaders recently attended the Government University Industry Research Roundtable (GUIRR) at the National Academies in Washington, D.C. UTSA was invited to participate in a joint panel addressing global cybersecurity for research infrastructure alongside senior leadership from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Dell Technologies.

GUIRR convened the day-long workshop for its members, experts and invited guests to provide a forum on policy priorities across the research enterprise, including public-private-academic partnerships, science and technology innovation, national security and national prosperity.

Attendees included leadership from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, University of Maryland, The Ohio State University, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, MIT Lincoln Laboratory, Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, National Science Foundation, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, IBM Research at the Almaden Lab, Office of the Director for National Intelligence, Space Operations at NASA, Atom Research Alliance and Intel Labs.


“I’m getting questions from peers across the country on how we did what we did and on the steps we took. Sharing our story with others is so important.”

Alignment to deliver world class research ecosystems

Kendra Ketchum, UTSA CIO and vice president for information management and technology, spoke about the importance of partnerships to drive digital transformation alongside NIST Director and Undersecretary of Commerce Laurie Locascio and Dell Leader Deborah Stokes. Moderated by Al Grasso, immediate past president and CEO of the MITRE Corporation, the panel explored the world-class model UTSA has created in collaboration with Dell and NIST for a high-performing computing research ecosystem and resilient infrastructure.

Over the last two years, UTSA has partnered with Dell to expand its research infrastructure—including hardware, software and virtual environments—and invest in high-performance computing (HPC), enhancing operations and security.

“This group came together to come up with strategic ideation around delivering world class technology for our research enterprise,” Ketchum explained. “My goal was to reduce the time to science by expanding and elevating the research infrastructure and adding more high-performance computing resources. This resulted in researchers who don’t have to worry about standing up their own ecosystems and can focus on obtaining the results of their investigations.”

Investing in the research infrastructure to reduce the time to science

“Investing in our hyperconverged infrastructure allowed us to really lean into Dell's expertise,” Ketchum explained. “Leveraging Dell’s engineering and HPC skills enabled us to conduct infrastructure upgrades and replacements to fill a gap for our research community. We know that if we want to get our researchers to their outcomes faster—reducing the time to science—we must be as committed as they are to strategic thinking and innovation.”

Importance of standardization in cyber for IP protection

The government partnership came into play as UTSA followed the NIST guidelines on cybersecurity, which was a critical piece. As a former vice president for research in academia, Locascio understands the intricacies and nuances of a research environment. Her office is responsible for setting cyber standards for the country.

The security of intellectual property and research investigations is a growing international concern that universities must be prepared to address. Universities and other institutions are subject to hacking attempts by mature nation-state actors and criminals trying to steal identities and research IP to create chaos across the globe. By building a system according to NIST standards, UTSA has created a resilient environment capable of withstanding the more than one million infiltration attempts that take place each day.

UTSA’s new hyperconverged infrastructure, combined with the State of Texas’ cybersecurity framework, gives the institution a very mature platform and portfolio for cybersecurity research. Students get the benefit of having this advanced ecosystem to go out and really research everything in the cyberspace, including data security, incident management and response—all elements of a fully functioning ecosystem.

Based on her collaborative work with industry and government, Ketchum was invited to speak on research IT and security practices. UTSA is a model in this field with IT systems that not only protect researchers and their IP but also the institution and its business continuity—ensuring that the university stays online and operates effectively around the clock.

Partnerships that deliver innovative solutions and secure ecosystems beyond campus

Beyond GUIRR, Ketchum has also been sharing this success story with her peers on the Leadership Board for CIOs (LBCIO) across the U.S. over the last few months. The interest is high.

“I’m getting questions from peers across the country on how we did what we did and on the steps we took. Sharing our story with others is so important,” Ketchum said. “We did reduce the time to science. Researchers are getting their outcomes sooner than anticipated. We built a full disaster recovery and business continuity data center by breaking down the silos and focusing on the desired outcomes of all our stakeholders.”

Jaclyn Shaw, interim vice president for research, economic development, and knowledge enterprise, who now serves as the university’s representative to GUIRR, was also in attendance.

“It was just a stellar opportunity to showcase the work Kendra and the University Technology Solutions team are doing on behalf of UTSA. What we have done under Kendra’s leadership is very much a best practice and a model amongst higher educational institutions in the U.S.,” Shaw said. “It takes industry, it takes government and it takes universities to really build a borderless ecosystem. To have our CIO sit alongside the nation's director for cyber standards was truly an honor for our institution.”

Membership in GUIRR was driven by UTSA President Taylor Eighmy’s vision to be part of a larger innovation ecosystem with peers to address the growing complexity of research opportunities. He also serves as the institutional leadership representative on its Council of the National Academies' Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable. Since joining in 2021, membership in GUIRR is a clear outcome of UTSA’s recent R1 designation.

“UTSA’s participation as a model for addressing global cyber security for research infrastructure alongside national leaders like Dell and NIST is a significant honor and affirms our university’s rapid trajectory towards becoming the next great public research university,” Eighmy said. “GUIRR is a critical forum for advancing collaboration across research ecosystems as it brings together thought leaders from all sectors to discuss innovative solutions to society’s grand challenges, and we’re proud to collaborate alongside those leaders to advance the nation’s science and technology agenda.”

Abraham Tinajero was an eighth grader when he saw a poster in his Longmont middle school’s library advertising a new program offering free college with a technology focus.

Interested, he talked to a counselor to learn more about P-TECH, an early college program where he could earn an associate’s degree along with his high school diploma. Liking the sound of the program, he enrolled in the inaugural P-TECH class as a freshman at Longmont’s Skyline High School.

“I really loved working on computers, even before P-TECH,” he said. “I was a hobbyist. P-TECH gave me a pathway.”

He worked with an IBM mentor and interned at the company for six weeks as a junior. After graduating in 2020 with his high school diploma and the promised associate’s degree in computer science from Front Range Community College, he was accepted to IBM’s yearlong, paid apprenticeship program.

IBM hired him as a cybersecurity analyst once he completed the apprenticeship.

“P-TECH has given me a great advantage,” he said. “Without it, I would have been questioning whether to go into college. Having a college degree at 18 is great to put on a resume.”

Stanley Litow, a former vice president of IBM, developed the P-TECH, or Pathways in Technology Early College High Schools, model. The first P-TECH school opened 11 years ago in Brooklyn, New York, in partnership with IBM.

Litow’s idea was to get more underrepresented young people into tech careers by giving them a direct path to college while in high school — and in turn create a pipeline of employees with the job skills businesses were starting to value over four-year college degrees.

The program, which includes mentors and internships provided by business partners, gives high school students up to six years to earn an associate’s degree at no cost.

Skyline High a pioneer in program

In Colorado, St. Vrain Valley was among the first school districts chosen by the state to offer a P-TECH program after the Legislature passed a bill to provide funding — and the school district has embraced the program.

Colorado’s first P-TECH programs started in the fall of 2016 at three high schools, including Skyline High. Over the last six years, 17 more Colorado high schools have adopted P-TECH, for at total of 20. Three of those are in St. Vrain Valley, with a fourth planned to open in the fall of 2023 at Longmont High School.

Each St. Vrain Valley high school offers a different focus supported by different industry partners.

Skyline partners with IBM, with students earning an associate’s degree in Computer Information Systems from Front Range. Along with being the first, Skyline’s program is the largest, enrolling up to 55 new freshmen each year.

Programs at the other schools are capped at 35 students per grade.

Frederick High’s program, which started in the fall of 2019, has a bioscience focus, partners with Aims Community College and works with industry partners Agilent Technologies, Tolmar, KBI Biopharma, AGC Biologics and Corden Pharma.

Silver Creek High’s program started a year ago with a cybersecurity focus. The Longmont school partners with Front Range and works with industry partners Seagate, Cisco, PEAK Resources and Comcast.

The new program coming to Longmont High will focus on business.

District leaders point to Skyline High’s graduation statistics to illustrate the program’s success. At Skyline, 100% of students in the first three P-TECH graduating classes earned a high school diploma in four years.

For the 2020 Skyline P-TECH graduates, 24 of the 33, or about 70%, also earned associate’s degrees. For the 2021 graduating class, 30 of the 47 have associate’s degrees — with one year left for those students to complete the college requirements.

For the most recent 2022 graduates, who have two years left to complete the college requirements, 19 of 59 have associate’s degrees and another six are on track to earn their degrees by the end of the summer.

Jumping at an opportunity

Louise March, Skyline High’s P-TECH counselor, keeps in touch with the graduates, saying 27 are working part time or full time at IBM. About a third are continuing their education at a four year college. Of the 19 who graduated in 2022 with an associate’s degree, 17 are enrolling at a four year college, she said.

Two of those 2022 graduates are Anahi Sarmiento, who is headed to the University of Colorado Boulder’s Leeds School of Business, and Jose Ivarra, who will study computer science at Colorado State University.

“I’m the oldest out of three siblings,” Ivarra said. “When you hear that someone wants to give you free college in high school, you take it. I jumped at the opportunity.”

Sarmiento added that her parents, who are immigrants, are already working two jobs and don’t have extra money for college costs.

“P-TECH is pushing me forward,” she said. “I know my parents want me to have a better life, but I want them to have a better life, too. Going into high school, I kept that mentality that I would push myself to my full potential. It kept me motivated.”

While the program requires hard work, the two graduates said, they still enjoyed high school and had outside interests. Ivarra was a varsity football player who was named player of the year. Sarmiento took advantage of multiple opportunities, from helping elementary students learn robotics to working at the district’s Innovation Center.

Ivarra said he likes that P-TECH has the same high expectations for all students, no matter their backgrounds, and gives them support in any areas where they need help. Spanish is his first language and, while math came naturally, language arts was more challenging.

“It was tough for me to see all these classmates use all these big words, and I didn’t know them,” he said. “I just felt less. When I went into P-TECH, the teachers focus on you so much, checking on every single student.”

They said it’s OK to struggle or even fail. Ivarra said he failed a tough class during the pandemic, but was able to retake it and passed. Both credited March, their counselor, with providing unending support as they navigated high school and college classes.

“She’s always there for you,” Sarmiento said. “It’s hard to be on top of everything. You have someone to go to.”

Students also supported each other.

“You build bonds,” Ivarra said. “You’re all trying to figure out these classes. You grow together. It’s a bunch of people who want to succeed. The people that surround you in P-TECH, they push you to be better.”

Support systems are key

P-TECH has no entrance requirements or prerequisite classes. You don’t need to be a top student, have taken advanced math or have a background in technology.

With students starting the rigorous program with a wide range of skills, teachers and counselors said, they quickly figured out the program needed stronger support systems.

March said freshmen in the first P-TECH class struggled that first semester, prompting the creation of a guided study class. The every other day, hour-and-a-half class includes both study time and time to learn workplace skills, including writing a resume and interviewing. Teachers also offer tutoring twice a week after school.

“The guided study has become crucial to the success of the program,” March said.

Another way P-TECH provides extra support is through summer orientation programs for incoming freshmen.

At Skyline, ninth graders take a three-week bridge class — worth half a credit — that includes learning good study habits. They also meet IBM mentors and take a field trip to Front Range Community College.

“They get their college ID before they get their high school ID,” March said.

During a session in June, 15 IBM mentors helped the students program a Sphero robot to travel along different track configurations. Kathleen Schuster, who has volunteered as an IBM mentor since the P-TECH program started here, said she wants to “return some of the favors I got when I was younger.”

“Even this play stuff with the Spheros, it’s teaching them teamwork and a little computing,” she said. “Hopefully, through P-TECH, they will learn what it takes to work in a tech job.”

Incoming Skyline freshman Blake Baker said he found a passion for programming at Trail Ridge Middle and saw P-TECH as a way to capitalize on that passion.

“I really love that they give you options and a path,” he said.

Trail Ridge classmate Itzel Pereyra, another programming enthusiast, heard about P-TECH from her older brother.

“It’s really good for my future,” she said. “It’s an exciting moment, starting the program. It will just help you with everything.”

While some of the incoming ninth graders shared dreams of technology careers, others see P-TECH as a good foundation to pursue other dreams.

Skyline incoming ninth grader Marisol Sanchez wants to become a traveling nurse, demonstrating technology and new skills to other nurses. She added that the summer orientation sessions are a good introduction, helping calm the nerves that accompany combining high school and college.

“There’s a lot of team building,” she said. “It’s getting us all stronger together as a group and introducing everyone.”

The spark of motivation

Silver Creek’s June camp for incoming ninth graders included field trips to visit Cisco, Seagate, PEAK Resources, Comcast and Front Range Community College.

During the Front Range Community College field trip, the students heard from Front Range staff members before going on a scavenger hunt. Groups took photos to prove they completed tasks, snapping pictures of ceramic pieces near the art rooms, the most expensive tech product for sale in the bookstore and administrative offices across the street from the main building.

Emma Horton, an incoming freshman, took a cybersecurity class as a Flagstaff Academy eighth grader that hooked her on the idea of technology as a career.

“I’m really excited about the experience I will be getting in P-TECH,” she said. “I’ve never been super motivated in school, but with something I’m really interested in, it becomes easier.”

Deb Craven, dean of instruction at Front Range’s Boulder County campus, promised the Silver Creek students that the college would support them. She also gave them some advice.

“You need to advocate and ask for help,” she said. “These two things are going to help you the most. Be present, be engaged, work together and lean on each other.”

Craven, who oversees Front Range’s P-TECH program partnership, said Front Range leaders toured the original P-TECH program in New York along with St. Vrain and IBM leaders in preparation for bringing P-TECH here.

“Having IBM as a partner as we started the program was really helpful,” she said.

When the program began, she said, freshmen took a more advanced technology class as their first college class. Now, she said, they start with a more fundamental class in the spring of their freshman year, learning how to build a computer.

“These guys have a chance to grow into the high school environment before we stick them in a college class,” she said.

Summer opportunities aren’t just for P-TECH’s freshmen. Along with summer internships, the schools and community colleges offer summer classes.

Silver Creek incoming 10th graders, for example, could take a personal financial literacy class at Silver Creek in the mornings and an introduction to cybersecurity class at the Innovation Center in the afternoons in June.

Over at Skyline, incoming 10th graders in P-TECH are getting paid to teach STEM lessons to elementary students while earning high school credit. Students in the fifth or sixth year of the program also had the option of taking computer science and algebra classes at Front Range.

Embracing the challenge

And at Frederick, incoming juniors are taking an introduction to manufacturing class at the district’s Career Elevation and Technology Center this month in preparation for an advanced manufacturing class they’re taking in the fall.

“This will give them a head start for the fall,” said instructor Chester Clark.

Incoming Frederick junior Destini Johnson said she’s not sure what she wants to do after high school, but believes the opportunities offered by P-TECH will prepare her for the future.

“I wanted to try something challenging, and getting a head start on college can only help,” she said. “It’s really incredible that I’m already halfway done with an associate’s degree and high school.”

IBM P-TECH program manager Tracy Knick, who has worked with the Skyline High program for three years, said it takes a strong commitment from all the partners — the school district, IBM and Front Range — to make the program work.

“It’s not an easy model,” she said. “When you say there are no entrance requirements, we all have to be OK with that and support the students to be successful.”

IBM hosted 60 St. Vrain interns this summer, while two Skyline students work as IBM “co-ops” — a national program — to assist with the P-TECH program.

The company hosts two to four formal events for the students each year to work on professional and technical skills, while IBM mentors provide tutoring in algebra. During the pandemic, IBM also paid for subscriptions to tutor.com so students could get immediate help while taking online classes.

“We want to get them truly workforce ready,”  Knick said. “They’re not IBM-only skills we’re teaching. Even though they choose a pathway, they can really do anything.”

As the program continues to expand in the district, she said, her wish is for more businesses to recognize the value of P-TECH.

“These students have had intensive training on professional skills,” she said. “They have taken college classes enhanced with the same digital credentials that an IBM employee can learn. There should be a waiting list of employers for these really talented and skilled young professionals.”
