Chamblee Charter High School students, Mia Gant and Adolfo Berudo, were among 25 individuals selected from metro Atlanta that participated in Tomorrow’s Technologists, a four-week code camp offered by LexisNexis Risk Solutions, a global leader in data, analytics and technology, in collaboration with TAG Education Collaborative and Higher Ground Education, Inc.

The session is part of ongoing initiatives by the organizations to invest in tomorrow’s technologists to ensure they have the necessary skills to enter the 21st century workforce.

Designed to expose students to computer science fundamentals, principles, big data and analytics, career planning, technology careers and digital citizenship, the camp introduced participants to four computer coding languages, game/animation creation, website creation, big data simulations and app development. 

Held at Georgia Institute of Technology and LexisNexis Risk Solutions, the program began June 25 and concluded July 20 when student teams presented their final projects to a panel of LexisNexis Risk Solutions’ judges.

After their final presentations, the students were gifted personal computers, courtesy of LexisNexis Risk Solutions, TAG Education Collaborative and Higher Ground Education, Inc., in recognition of their accomplishments at the camp.
