Students from Winters Joint Unified School District (WJUSD) took part in the second annual Chromebook Repair Certification Camp. Students learned how to disassemble and reassemble five different types of Chromebooks, how to diagnose and repair basic issues related to Chromebooks and took the Dell Certification exam. This exam certified students to repair Dell Laptops and Chromebooks and is recognized across the technology industry. Interested students were then able to apply for a paid week-long internship with WJUSD, where they will apply their skills in a real-world environment to repair and certify Chromebooks in preparation for the 2018-2019 school year.

Students participating in the camp come from the Winters high school and middle school. Some expressed interest in a career in technology while others were interested in learning basic skills related to technology hardware, such as how to build a computer. One student expressed an interest in using the skills he acquired from the camp to support his senior capstone project. This is another example of how Winters’ schools inspire and cultivate pathways to success through an ongoing commitment to college and career skills.
