Job shadowing gives students the opportunity to see the realities of a profession or industry and the connections between learning and the real world. Students from Stratford STEM Magnet High School in the Academy of National Safety and Security Technologies participated in a job shadow at Firefly Logic. In this post, they write about their experience.
Firefly Logic is a technology development company creating software, mobile apps, web development, and marketing opportunities for clients. Students from Stratford STEM Magnet High School engaged with the company CEO, a programming developer, and web developer, to understand their creative process by listening to the customer needs and vision. Students learned about the iterative process of software development life cycle, their development methods, tracking project progress, testing, and delivery to the client.
