Canyoneering at Yankee Doodle Canyon

Unforgettable Canyoneering in Yankee Doodle Canyon

The canyoneering trip was an experience I’ll never forget.

It was an optional activity that me, Dallin, and Grady went on with Cam in Yankee Doodle canyon.

Once we started, it was impossible to climb back out the way we started, so we got to really push our limits.

There was hiking, climbing, rappelling, chimney-crawling through slot canyons, wading, and even some swimming.

The canyon was beautiful, and there were lots of purple flowers blooming.

It was warm outside, but the water was freezing cold.

I was exhausted physically and emotionally by the end, but it felt great to have accomplished it.

TFL Students Tour Local Tech Companies

 

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.

Rocky obstacles and pools of water

Red Cliffs Hike With Rocky Obstacles and Pools of Water

 

We had a great time out at the Red Cliffs hike recently.

There was a lot of runoff, which created some beautiful clear pools of cold water that only
Grady dared swim in.

Amber, Dylan and I hiked in further while the rest hung out at the first pool.

We had to pass a rocky obstacle using some rope to avoid falling into the pool of water below.

It was kinda tricky, and a lot of fun.

"Wild Bunch" escapes...

“The Wild Bunch” Escapes…

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.

TechieForLife Coding Ceremony Certificate

Certificate Ceremony For Tech Classes At TechieForLife

Back in December, TechieForLife held a certificate ceremony to wrap up the end of the semester.

Students received certificates once they had shown a foundation of literacy, skill, knowledge, and application in coding and design skill sets.

Our students have worked hard over the past semester and it was a great opportunity to recognize their hard work and success as they press forward in Coding and Design.
