I thought I would share this from one of the parents at my school. 

Hello my name is Monica Ralston. 


I am a part of a group of design professionals taking part in Ohio Tech Day (Next Friday).  This event is designed for HS students to learn about various careers in technology b/c all too often kids think then only jobs in tech are for programmers.  I’m not sure if you are aware of this so I wanted to at least put it on your radar.  Because I work in the design-side of technology, I wanted to share this session in case you think any of your students might be interested. 


Also, we are having a hard time attracting HS kids to the event.  Is there a state organization of HS tech teachers that I could share this information with?  This would also be a great fit for anyone who teaches design thinking or something similar.


With thanks,

Monica Ralston
