For Central Indiana rising high school Juniors and Seniors, Catapult is a yearlong immersive experience that helps students aspiring for a career in technology to develop technical and workplace skills, authentic peer relationships, a passion for community service and deep roots for a lifelong personal and professional connection to Indianapolis.
Nextech has partnered with best-in-class community organizations and industry volunteers to facilitate a series of learning experiences to ensure all Catapult participants develop a strong foundation of skills needed to succeed in college, career and life.
To develop baseline programming skills, students participate in a 3-week coding fundamentals bootcamp. The skills are complemented with lessons in design thinking.
From workplace visits to guest speakers to 1:1 coaching, students develop the relationships needed to form both a personal and professional connection to Indianapolis.
Students engage in experiential learning, discovery and informative sessions designed to foster a personal relationship with Indianapolis and spark an interest in civic engagement.
Industry-led workshops equip students with the foundation needed for postsecondary success, focusing on the crucial workplace skills employers seek but often find lacking.
The Catapult program would not be possible without the financial support of corporations and philanthropic foundations that share our passion for creating equitable access to opportunity for all students.. We are incredibly appreciative of the organizations listed to the right for their commitment to the Catapult program.
