Head Magnet partners with Positive Images and IDS to provide students with project-based learning opportunity

Through a partnership with Innertainment Delivery Systems (IDS), about 30 young men from Head Middle Magnet had the chance to learn what it's like to work on a high-tech, collaborative team. 23

At IDS, the students were placed in groups of five or six and partnered with a developer who helped them to complete a specified project. After their projects were complete, the groups presented them to the IDS team and their classmates.

In addition to being exposed to coding, students were also shown the collaboration skills and communication skills that are needed to work in a team in a tech environment.

Dr. Rubin Cockrell and his organization Positive Images lead the mentoring program at Head Magnet, Tools for Intentional Excellence. It is through this program that this partnership was made possible.
