This iD Tech alum landed a college internship in the Engineering & Physics department.
While this former student has personally benefited from his time at iD Tech Camps—excelling as an intern at a New York college—he is doing all he can to spread technology knowledge to others. From teaching software and social media to seniors, to founding his high school’s first robotics club (which recently won the Highest Rookie Seed Award at the FIRST Regional Robotics Competition) and building apps, websites, and more, Louis-Henri is a self-appointed jack-of-all-trades.
When we caught up with him, he was working on developing apps and websites, teaching technology to senior citizens, and constructing his own social network. He has since added “intern” to his resume, working within the Engineering & Physics Department at a reputable college in New York, and is also contributing to the development of a website on Ribonucleic Acid Interference (RNAI) Screen Data Analysis Pipeline.
Where was his love for STEM developed? iD Tech Camps.
“iD was like a launching pad for me. It gave me a boost and sparked ideas, while providing the tools and skills necessary to realize my goals.”
During his internship, Louis-Henri fabricated electronic components for a new set of student lab experiments, while verifying functionality and diagnosing problems along the way. He was also tasked with implementing a series of security tests for Class-C wireless networks, and processed a large data set from a networking topology control experiment.
Louis-Henri says he’s lucky to have had the chance to attend iD Tech Camps, completing courses including C ++, Web Design, and iPhone App Development. But he has also realized that many of those who came before him were never exposed to technology courses, or even technology for that matter. So, he took up teaching senior citizens, showing them the ins and outs of various software programs, and bringing them up to speed on all things social media.
“Above all else, iD Tech Camps made me feel more confident about my abilities. After camp, I now realize that I definitely want a career in computers. I also feel that such a goal is attainable with the skills I’ve learned.”
While discovering all he can about technology and already putting that knowledge to use both personally and professionally, Louis-Henri is certainly on the path towards a successful future in STEM.
