Five days of fun with learning

Photography

Dakota County Technical College hosted the 4th annual Teens eXperiencing Technical Education event July 28 through Aug. 1, 2014, on the college’s main campus in Rosemount, Minn. Linda Foster, DCTC instructional technology director as well as the creator and organizer of TXT, reported that the week-long workshop series gave about 200 girls in grades 5–7 the chance to explore programs in the DCTC Business & Management, Design & Technology, Health & Human Services, Industry Careers and Transportation departments. Dakota County 4H and six area robotics teams also provided experiential learning workshops during TXT.

“TXT is a fun, hands-on way for girls to gain a new appreciation for opportunities in technical career fields,” Foster said. “We get the chance to showcase DCTC programs and faculty—and the girls always have a great time.”
