The winning team of Digital Media Technology students Ruben Balderas and Aaron Page interviewed Instructor James Polson, among others, as part of their assignment in the regional competition for SkillsUSA on February 3rd. Contestants were challenged to plan, shoot and edit a short video as if it were an assignment from the SyFy channel on behalf of their 'Ghosthunters' series.

Elsewhere in the SEATech facility, Electrical Systems Technology students raced against the clock to complete a residential wiring assignment under the supervision of Instructor Eric Matson.  At the end of the day, Matson and Digital Media Instructor Jeffrey Townsend made plans to take their winning students to the SkillsUSA state competition in Yakima at the end of April.

Even after the fast-paced and jam-packed day, they both said that they look forward to hosting an even bigger regional competition next year.


Digital Media Technology Bellevue WA Tours

Nineteen students from the Digital Media Technology program at SEA-TECH visited two top-tier video game companies in Bellevue, Washington, on May 20.  Representatives from Valve and Bungie were on hand to take the students on tours of each facility, followed by Q&A sessions about possible career paths.  An unexpected surprise was learning that their Valve host was Ricky White (Wa-Hi class of '04).  The trip gave the students a clear picture of the pathways to careers in the industry.  The students are very grateful to the community donors who made the trip possible.

Career Cruising

This fall, all students at SEA Tech and Walla Walla High School were introduced to Career Cruising, our new career matching and exploration software. Based on student's answers to questions, the software matched students to career ideas. For every career match, students chose links to more information, including high school class suggestions, post high school education, financial aid and scholarships, salary potential, career advancement and advice from professionals. As we introduced Career Cruising to students, we heard many times, "this matched me to exactly what I was thinking about doing" and "Now I know what I need to do to get this job", and "Why did it pick this for me?" These insights spurred some great conversations with students. Even with one session, Career Cruising has given students a variety of career options and information that will help them achieve their goals.
