Emerald Cove Pre-IT Partners With FPL

The FPL/NextEra Energy Information Technology Department recently welcomed the Emerald Cove Middle School Pre-IT Academy students to provide a hands-on learning experience that would inspire and equip the students with the computing skills they’ll need to purse in their future careers. Students had the opportunity to network with many of the IT professionals to gain additional knowledge on the many opportunities for females in an IT career. The students received a tour of the facility, explored various modalities in technologies, and engaged in a coding activity that allowed them to make the connection between the traditional classroom and the real world.
