viNGN joined St. Joseph Catholic High School IT Academy partners Innovative, Broadband VI and VI Waste Management Authority in celebrating the first cohort of the United States Virgin Islands’ first IT Academy with an exciting Cisco networking competition and National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) session.

In the competition, parents and younger students got to witness an exciting networking contest where the students received a diagram and had to build the network and then manually configure the entire thing so that testing pings went through cleanly. The instructor actually kept counting down the time remaining in irregular intervals, creating a wonderful tension which sure mimics the stress of a network admin as s/he tries to resolve a problem and get a network rebuilt and online quickly!

Alongside academy partners Innovative, viNGN presented a workshop on tech career opportunities available to students, with interactive Q&A.
