Ballash The Computer Club is starting a skills badge system whereby students will recieve a certificate for mastering each level of skills and proficiency. The program includes technical writing exercises. Students can progress at their own pace. We hope students will be able to this computer skills portfolio to assist in getting interships, jobs, and credit for community service when applying to colleges. The program is outlined below.
