TechOlympics is Cincinnati's premiere high school technology competition and expo.

Each year, the TechOlympics Showcase is a central part of our technology competition and event. Schools work on their Showcase projects with their coach during the November to February timeframe, then present their projects as a team in front of our panel of executive judges from all over Cincinnati's business community. The Showcase projects are the single largest point-generating activity at TechOlympics.

Taft Information Technology High School did compete in the Showcase Competition, with an Anti-Bullying digital story about the effects from bullying. The students have explored programs that require critical thinking, problem solving, organizational skills and creative and innovative methods of learning. Students explored coding as well as videography and the aspects of video editing which evolved into the development of this powerful digital story -- the recipe: developed characters, added music, heart, time and efforts in research and casting and staging and to sync and render it all together provided a message in a creative and meaningful story when watched. Their presentation received several positive comments from the judges.

The TechOlympics event is an excellent opportunity for the students to network with other students, to learn about the latest technology trends, talk to prospective universities and companies, and to meet many interesting people from the academia and from the industry.

Three members of the Taft team had also the honor to meet UC President, Dr. Santa Ono! They definitely look very good in the Taft T-shirts, they have designed specially for Tech Olympics! 

A big "Thank You" to Ms. Beamon and Mr. Woodly for their support for the team during preparation and for being there with the students during TechOlympics!
