All modules in the Mobile Career Center are designed for students to explore career options in our local and regional community through hands-on activities. There is a strong focus on the importance of safety for themselves and for their colleagues.
Culinary Arts – Students will make a pizza from scratch. Make the dough, knead it, roll it out, and add toppings and bake. Students learn about food safety, food refrigeration and food preparation in this module. Student Perspective, Information from the experts.
Commercial Graphics (Graphics Design)– Students will develop a short design project. First, they will create a thumbnail, then we will take a picture with the surface and upload it into Adobe Illustrator. This is a great activity for those students who are very creative.
Multimedia – Students will be introduced to the course by another student via video. After that, they will learn how to operate a DSLR (digital single-lens reflex) camera. They will take pictures, import them into Adobe Lightroom, prepare them for the web, and then create a post on the www. MCC.jamesrumsey.com web site. The instructor will publish after reviewing for content and permission on student pictures. Student Perspective.
Health & Human Services
Criminal Justice– Students will learn about latent fingerprinting, crime scene investigation, mock trials, and identify careers within the Criminal Justice field. Due to the popularity of this module, it will be expanded into two stations.
Health Occupations – Students will learn to take each other’s vital stats, such as blood pressure, heart rate, and body temperature. This module is ideally suited for two students at a time. This station seems to be the most popular, we are working toward providing two stations for students.
Fire Science – Students will practice putting on fire safety gear and equipment, and will learn about fire safety. This module is being expanded to include EMT with a child-sized dummy. A sample video of the class completing a “Door Breach”
all modules reside on all new laptops that can be moved between stations.
Coding App and Game Design Students will watch a short video on they types of sorts used in programming. They will create their own 8 card sort written in pseudo code. Once completed they will have someone in the career center to follow their written program to produce the sort.
CISCO – Students will use simulation software to set up a wireless home network and a combination network for the MCC. Student Perspective.
Robotics(Engineering) – Students will have a choice: they can use Coder Z for simulation robotics tasks or work with cubelet blocks.
IT-Informatics – This module is developed using GMetrix to prepare students to use software in a business environment.
Aerospace Engineering – Students will create a paper airplane with functional flaps and rudder.
Early Childhood Education – Students will develop basic lesson plans for preschool children. They will be introduced to a simple “multiple intelligences” survey. Students will also be given the opportunity to work with Pinterest on an ipad to help create an age-appropriate lesson plan.
Construction & Manufacturing
