CWIT advances girls and women in STEM subjects and careers

There’s no shortage of interest among women and girls in science, tech, engineering and math (STEM) subjects. Yet women continue to be underrepresented in these fields and markets.

That’s the issue Charlottesville Women in Tech and Tech-Girls seeks to address. Their vision is to bridge the gender gap in tech through educational programing, established networks and career resources.

CWIT and Tech-Girls provide a welcoming environment for girls and women in tech to connect, learn and collaborate.

Ting Westminster internship

Practical, hands-on career experiences can make all the difference for students when it comes to building a set of hard skills to support their post-grad endeavors.

Ting Internet was excited to host Michael N. for a writing internship in Westminster, MD. Michael was a student in Josh Ambrose’s class at McDaniel College, Writing for Main Street.

Ting Westminster internshipMichael had the chance to write for the Ting Westminster blog for the fall semester from September to December 2017. He covered local events as well as customer features, and assembled his work into fun blog posts to be distributed on social media.

Ting was involved in several initiatives and Michael got to cover our involvement at Fallfest and the Oyster Stroll. His customer profiles featured Ting Internet customers and detailed the practical uses of fiber internet in day-to-day life.

We’re proud to host interns like Michael and had a fantastic time working with him to produce some great online content.

Makerspace experiences and Ting Works

Ting Makerspace

Welcome to the Makerspace

At Ting, we like to think of makerspaces as physical embodiments of the principles of the Internet.

A makerspace is a lot of things. It’s a community space where you’ll meet like-minded people. It’s a tool library where you can try out the latest technology. Most of all, it’s a place where ideas, inventions and innovations come to life.

At Ting, we’re big believers in all things makerspace. That’s why we opened our very own Ting Makerspace in Westmisnter, MD. Check out the launch party and learn more about the Ting Makerspace in the video below.

Rapid prototyping: 3D printers can do that

rapid prototyping

What is rapid prototyping?

Prototyping a product used to take months and cost tens of thousands of dollars. 3D printers, like you might find in a local makerspace or even a library, cut that down to hours and pennies.

When businesses are coming up with new design ideas or product, they often look to prototypes and scale models to test out their vision in the real world. While advanced, manufacturer-ready prototypes still cost a lot in terms of dollars and days. 3D printers have made rapid prototyping and creating proof of concept scale models accessible to even the most bootstrapped startup, student or budding artist.

Even with today’s admittedly rudimentary 3D “consumer level” printing technology, a model or a part can be turned from a digital design into a physical thing quickly and for just a few cents per gram of media needed to print. Quick real-world testing helps refine the design and planning phases of the product cycle, whatever the 3D printed model may be.

The Haven

The history of The Haven

The Haven is a day shelter and housing social service provider located in downtown Charlottesville, Virginia. This multi-resource center offers respite services and housing assistance and is committed to the ethos that the solution to homelessness is housing.

The Haven started as the coming together of several different community groups including a group of concerned community members, the Thomas Jefferson Area Coalition for the Homeless and Tom Shadyac, a University of Virginia alumnus and filmmaker.

Tom and his crew were in Charlottesville in 2005 shooting a film and got to know many of the people experiencing homelessness in the area. Moved by their needs, he connected with project managers, community leaders and the TJACH to come up with a concept for a downtown shelter. In 2010, The Haven opened its doors as a community day shelter.
