We are currently recruiting thirty-six high school boys here in the greater Portland area for our fall session, running Sep 13 – Nov 15 2014.
Tuition is only $195 for the ten-week session. Scholarships are available based upon need.
Our method is to build amazing technical projects while challenging teens to work alongside us. We train them to produce world class results on industry leading tools, and empower them to teach their peers to do the same.
In addition to maintaining their tasks relative to the group project, each cadet is also required to pursue a rigorous self development track. This track is developed in conjunction with BT staff, parents, and an advisor/mentor. While track customization is allowed, cadets are initially required to focus equally on mathematics and software development (coding).
Project work is done both online and in real space. Cadets and staff utilize a varied toolset to accomplish tasks and stay connected on-and-offline. Daily interactions are required in the online workspace, but there are also several mandatory in-person appearances throughout the month — a hybrid approach that mirrors global corporate practices of a distributed workforce.
