Virtual MAD-internship Program Grows
This week’s Monday morning zoom meeting included many windows, as MAD-learn welcomed six new virtual summer interns (with four more on the way). This strong group of high school students will be contributing animations, avatars, AR curriculum elements, and more in meaningful—and what will certainly be rewarding—ways. These virtual student interns are dialing in from Texas, New York, Florida, Kansas, and more and found out about our virtual internship program through the Congressional App Challenge, local CSTA webinars, parents who are teachers, and friends. We love the network effect! This is the largest group of interns we have ever had, and the skill sets they bring will help our program continue to improve and grow!
MAD-teacher of the Month
Virtual summer camps have unique challenges, but people like Gabriel Gomez help overcome obstacles in many ways. The most important of which are life experiences that have shaped his affective personality.
Born in the Gambia, Gabriel spent much of his youth in England. His life adventure began at birth. His parents were living in England during his mother’s pregnancy. His father, insisting his son be born in his native Gambia, flew his wife and unborn child (due in mere weeks) on a plane to Africa, where Gabriel was born!

July’s Featured Tutorial
From the “Appreneurship 101” module comes an interesting guide to how creative logos help promote your brand. After reviewing several famous and small-scale offerings, the slide deck presentation includes an activity in which students can try their hand at building their own design.
This resource has been getting more use, these days, even with students who are not involved in this specific extracurricular program! Fair warning, though, you won’t be able to unsee what you may have overlooked in the past.
