Texas Mutual partners with Code2College for case competition event
On September 23, Texas Mutual opened its doors to 40 high school students with Code2College for a 5-hour case competition. Kids spent their Saturday with several members of our IT department working on a webpage design challenge to gain real-world experience and insight into an IT career.
Code2College is a nonprofit organization focused on providing education and support for kids and young adults to excel in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) undergraduate majors and careers. They’re working hard to increase the rate at which historically underrepresented groups, such as women, Black and Latine students complete STEM majors and enter the workforce with a related position.
During the event, kids were broken up into groups and tasked with creating a Texas Mutual log in page. They collaborated with each other and members of our IT department to design their pages. At the end of the challenge, groups presented their ideas to Texas Mutual employees who volunteered as judges for the competition. The students gained valuable, professional experience throughout the day.
