We are preparing for the Texas Techies Animator 2009 Competition on Friday, November 20, 2009. http://www.texastechies.org/animator
Over 100 students from all over Corpus Christi have registered to participate in the competition. The goal is to have representatives from different organizations and companies that are children, education and technology related to participate in the event by setting up a table. This competition will provide you an opportunity to showcase the services you provide to the Corpus Christi community.
Corpus Christi's Mayor Joe Adame will be the Guest of Honor as well as one of the judges.
What is the purpose of the event? The motivation behind the event is to raise the profile of technology education to young children in Texas. It has three specific aims:
  1. To raise the profile of Technology Education as an important and exciting tool for community success.
  2. To provide teachers with a new approach to motivating and enthusing students to learn.
  3. The competition is aimed not only at technology teachers but to teachers of other subjects in which computing tools and techniques are increasingly being applied. In doing so we hoped to communicate the way in which technology is increasingly enabling advances in other discipline areas.
