Digital Surgeons Mixes it up with Website Design Team Students at the 2009 ACES Technology Advantage

Peter Sena II, Chief Technical Officer of Digital Surgeons attended this year’s ACES Technology Advantage End of Year Celebration and Award Ceremony at in New Haven, CT. This year on May 20th, over 300 people were in attendance at the Michael J. Adanti Student Center on the SCSU campus to pay tribute to the students who participated and the dedicated teachers who provided guidance.

  Every year the ACES Technology Advantage inter-district grant brings together students from twelve Connecticut high schools and middle schools to create educational websites through team collaboration. Students were divided into teams with each member selecting a job role that fit his interests and talents. These real world roles included the website project coordinator, web designers, technical writer, interactive content editor, and a multimedia role combining graphic, video, and sound editing.

  Mr. Sena and other local CT business leaders were invited to attend and hold informal discussions with participating ACES students about their custom website projects and future goals while enjoying a casual continental breakfast. Discussions centered on the use of technology, project management and the modern workforce skills that employers will expect in the ‘real world’. The Digital Surgeons CTO had a chance to talk to several individual students about what it’s like to be a growing business owner and to educate them about the web development and search engine marketing world.
