Tonight we have the pleasure of hosting the Southwest Career and Technical Academy’s Capstone presentations here at The Innevation Center. The Southwest CTA is a magnet high school here in Las Vegas that offers eleven different educational paths that students take over a four-year program. When applying, students choose an educational path: the Professional Service Academy or the Design Academy.
Advanced and Honors courses are offered at Southwest CTA and students are able to earn college credits through the 2+2 Tech Prep Program and through Advanced Placement courses, per the school’s website. “Rigorous coursework, hands-on projects, job-shadowing, and internships will give students first-hand experience in their selected program areas,” they explain.
In tonight’s event the students are getting a chance to use our state-of-the-art facilities to present their Capstone projects to the rest of their classmates and families. This event doesn’t just benefit the technology students at Southwest CTA; the culinary students are preparing all of the food for tonight’s 200 attendees!
Projects include a fitness program that uses your webcam, a website that helps children learn to code at an early age, and a website that helps you find different ways to give back to your community. There are countless bright minds at Southwest CTA that have worked all year for today and we at Innevation are excited that we can give them the space to properly showcase their hard work!
