We toured two local companies; InfoWest and MetaShield.
InfoWest is a pretty sweet company, the atmosphere there was friendly and relaxed.
We got to see their help desk room as well as their server room.
Anyone with a background in Information Technology would agree that they feel at home when entering their help desk room.
MetaShield is a company that creates advanced coatings for materials like glass.
We got to see their chemistry room where “all the magic happens.”
We also got to see their highly advanced, scientific, machinery that’s used to measure various different properties of whatever coating they’re testing.
—Reid, TFL Student
Reid comes to us from Texas.
He also enjoys playing video games and working out in his spare time.
All of us here at TFL can tell a difference already in his body physique, he is taking it quite seriously.
Reid’s favorite food is Thai and if he had a super power, he would want to be able to fly.
Reid’s goals while at TFL is to gain all the certifications he can earn and to find a job to help support his lifestyle.
We have already taken note of how serious Reid is taking his coding classes and we look forward to see what he is capable of doing this summer in the intensive coding classes.
We were named the, “The Wild Bunch” when we entered the escape room!
We had one hour to find Butch Cassidy’s gun
and we worked hard as a team solving puzzles,
using our nose to smell things and identify different scents,
we struggled with trying to figuring out anagrams
and unfortunately those anagrams held us back from finding Butch Cassidy’s gun
but we had a lot of fun working together.
It was fun to see how everyone’s brains worked so differently in the way they looked at the puzzles
but how each one contributed in helping us move closer and and closer to finding the gun.
