We are excited to announce that SEATech is currently developing a Criminal Justice Program, to become available in the Spring of 2018. The new program for local high schoolers will afford yet another fantastic opportunity for students to advance their technical skills, in order to prepare them for the workforce. Keep an eye out for additional details in the coming weeks.


SEATech hosts regional competitions


The winning team of Digital Media Technology students Ruben Balderas and Aaron Page interviewed Instructor James Polson, among others, as part of their assignment in the regional competition for SkillsUSA on February 3rd. Contestants were challenged to plan, shoot and edit a short video as if it were an assignment from the SyFy channel on behalf of their 'Ghosthunters' series.

Elsewhere in the SEATech facility, Electrical Systems Technology students raced against the clock to complete a residential wiring assignment under the supervision of Instructor Eric Matson.  At the end of the day, Matson and Digital Media Instructor Jeffrey Townsend made plans to take their winning students to the SkillsUSA state competition in Yakima at the end of April.

Even after the fast-paced and jam-packed day, they both said that they look forward to hosting an even bigger regional competition next year.


Digital Media Technology Bellevue WA Tours

Nineteen students from the Digital Media Technology program at SEA-TECH visited two top-tier video game companies in Bellevue, Washington, on May 20.  Representatives from Valve and Bungie were on hand to take the students on tours of each facility, followed by Q&A sessions about possible career paths.  An unexpected surprise was learning that their Valve host was Ricky White (Wa-Hi class of '04).  The trip gave the students a clear picture of the pathways to careers in the industry.  The students are very grateful to the community donors who made the trip possible.
