I learned this at Techie Youth today!

Today at Techie Youth I enjoyed learning about how to master the job interview and process of getting hired. The tips and tricks I got from the videos Techie Youth provided were very informational and I especially liked the Mock interview video because it provided me with a practice round of what an interview would be. I have had many interviews already before but it is always good to learn from mistakes and learn more about how to get any job you want. I began to dive into how to work a successful remote job, and thought the videos on being "Zoom-call ready" were very important because now adays a lot of meetings are virtually, such as scholarship interviews, job interviews, and job conferences. I look forward to continue learning more tomorrow!

How to create Robotic Products- I learned this at Techie Youth today!

Today at techie youth I went over creating robotic products in which one can sell and create profit. There are various websites and products that can help master how you can make a robotic product.

I looked over the coding for a nightlight and was able to see videos of how to set up the hardware before you set up the coding. I also looked at other software such as Raspberry Pi, which also serves as a method to set up your coding for your robot. I was fascinated by the amount of projects a small amount of research and coding that has been created by others. Such as DIY RC cars and even a cat robot! Techie youth has provided me with the materials to learn more about how to create my own robotic products that I could potentially sell and make profit.
