February is Career and Technical Education (CTE) Month in Texas. Through CTE, Mulesho High School students gain hands-on experience and training beyond general career knowledge. Taught by AJ Villanueva, her IT and Computer Science Principles classes enable students to develop skills from hardware to coding, with a focus on professionalism.
PIT students have been extremely busy this year. So far, they’ve completed his HTML/CSS Web Design, Game Development with Unity, and Introduction to Programming units. Additionally, he has gained valuable IT experience building, imaging, and installing over 60 custom-built PCs to replace older computers in the Muleshoe ISD lab. Students acquire the hardware, networking, and professionalism skills necessary to work in the IT industry. They plan to build at least two more labs’ worth of computers in the coming months.
Computer Science students have also completed the HTML/CSS Web Design unit and nearly completed the CodeHS course on Java programming. After completing the Java unit, we move on to the Python programming language.
In addition to his programming experience, CS Class has helped the PIT Class build, image, and install custom-built PCs in the lab.
