Designed by teenage tech whiz, Caroline Combemale, Teens as Teachers is a series of workshops that invite students to learn about computing programs like Scratch and become teachers and mentors in their own schools and communities. The workshops help students develop leadership and technical skills that can be passed on through learning programs that the students design themselves, using their own interests as a starting point.
Hosted at Assemble in Garfield, where Caroline is a student teacher and intern, the workshop series is a professional development course for pre-professionals, giving students a chance to not only decide what to learn–but how to teach it as well. Driven by their own passion for technology, students involved in Teens as Teachers can bring change their communities schools, teaching their peers the future of technology.
