IT: Different, yet still the same
To computers, EVERYTHING is 1s and 0s. So even though it might look like drawing a picture on a computer has nothing in common with making a drone fly – they’re more similar than they initially appear, and the more you know about one, not only do you understand the other better – but all other computers as well. Our program imparts IT proficiency by exploring the connections between all of it’s facets.
Three Paths. One Destination.
Based on their personal interests, F.I.T. students are offered three different paths to pursuit in our program: Design, Build, & Code.

STUDENT LED. INSTRUCTOR SUPERVISED.
Not only do our student mentors acquire countless transferable skills while guiding our participants, they also get first-hand experience in a variety of in-demand technology fields – both of which looks great on college and employment applications.
By having content presented by patient, knowledgeable members of their generation, our participants often establish a tight bond with their mentor.
FUNDAMENTAL, INFINITELY SCALABLE SKILLS.
Many great programs use pre-built components and packaged kits to introduce youth to information technology; while such items can help curb the complexity of some concepts, the cost of this convenience is often overlooking the details which are necessary for future mastery.
Our program uses freely-available, open standard software and basic components to impart professional – yet engaging – lessons.
ESSENTIAL STRATEGIC & SOFT SKILLS
Strategy is an essential tool for solving any challenge – be it personal, professional, or technological. Logically being able to assess a challenge is an extremely powerful ability and – given the nature of computers – they’re a great platform to hone said ability.
Success is all about balance – our program provides both our student mentors and participants with the skills necessary to achieve – and sustain – fulfilling and rewarding careers.
