All three teams of the virtual Web Application Teams have advanced from Anoka High School! Two volunteers from Medtronic work with them from September to February developing their technical skills. It has been a great opportunity for the students to rub shoulders with employees that do what they want to do.
In addition to this, five additional students have qualified for the national BPA conference through the software development web application event that Medtronic helps with. It has been a great year with these kids, and we are hoping the new STEAM person will sign on to work with the Medtronic group in future years.
