Tech Team Tryouts
We will hold tryouts/testing for 6th - 8th grade students who would like to try out for the JGS Tech Team on Thursday, September 20th and Friday, September 21st in the computer lab. Testing will be held during study hall on both days. Those interested only need to come to one of the testing periods.
Students will be required to fill out an application, complete a series of short quizzes designed to test basic knowledge of computer systems, components, applications, and troubleshooting techniques. Students must also maintain a "C" or better in each of his/her classes to be eligible. Fifteen students will be chosen for the Tech Team based upon the completeness and appropriateness of the application, scores on the quizzes, proven ability to work well with peers and staff regarding computer matters, and the ability to maintain a grade of "C" or higher in all classes. All interested students MUST try out again this year, even if he/she was on the team last year.
Students chosen for the Tech Team will be required to help with set-up, clean-up and technical matters for the Students Involved with Technology Conference to be held in the Spring. Students will also be required to give a technology-related presentation at the Conference. Students will also learn some basic troubleshooting skills to help aid teachers and staff with common computer issues.
