Upper School student co-study opportunity ignites passion.
Upper School junior student, Zach Schultz, was recently featured in a news article about new programs offered through Oakland Schools Technical Centers. This partnership between OTEC and schools like Eton Academy allows for students to further explore their passions as well as gain real world experience.
“I’ve always been interested in cybersecurity. It seemed like something that I’d enjoy, and it is,” Schultz said. “I just really like computers. They’re a lot of fun to play with and find out how they work and try to fix.”
He said the class learned how to build computers in the beginning of the year and that his favorite aspect is the hands-on experience.
“(I enjoy) learning things we do in the real world to prepare us and better benefit us in the future,” he said. “Even if you don’t want to go into computer networking, it’s still a great thing to learn because computers are the future.”
