ILP/Abuharthieh

​For my ILP I am taking the law class on the second floor in Ms.Sessa's biochem room. I only went once and I kind of like it so far. We haven't really done anything other than talk about our rights as people. But hopefully it gets better as I continue on.

ILP Hadleigh Stammers

My ILP is at Russell Byers Charter School. I go every Wednesday and help out with the 4th grade. So far I have helped the teacher, Ms. Romanek, file and organize her classroom and also engage with the kids. When I get there the kids have a guided reading class and I help them read in small groups and make sure they understand what they are reading. It is fun to work with this group of kids because I enjoy the age group; they are not too young and also not too close to my age. I also look forward to my ILP because I used to go to RBCS, and it brings back good memories from when I was in elementary school.

Tia Updated ILP

I am still volunteering at First Philadelphia Preparatory Charter School as an assistant coach for cheer leading. I continue to teach around 14-15 girls every Wednesday and Saturday different stuff. I work with a older mentor that helps with the girls. I also do paper work and help after hours within the school. I help get the girls physicals and contracts together throughout the season.

My ILP

The past few times that I have been at my ILP, were the best learning experiences for me because I was doing different things and I was learning more about the different things that go on at the Cat hospital. A few weeks ago, I actually got to assist in restocking the boarding room and meet some of the cats. I am still learning about how the cats behave in different environments and what different types of cat breeds there are.  I am looking forward to learning about cat behaviors and even more about what goes on at the cat hospital.

Zahirah: ILP

My ILP is at a school in Olney. I go there every Wednesday, and stay until 4:30, which is when the afterschool program staff come. I work with kids in grades 5-8, and help their teachers grade tests. My mentor is  Ms. Mac, and she's a social studies teacher.

My ILP

I will be starting my ILP at WXPN this Wednesday, and I am really excited to get started. I am going to be working with a sound engineer at WXPN, and am hoping that this opportunity will help me learn more about the music industry, and I will be able to use this information that I learn in greater extent in the future. I am hoping that this will be fun and I will get to learn a lot too.

Check In

My ILP is going well, some weeks I cannot go because I have debate but Allison is very aware of that. We are just helping the freshman out by walking them to their classrooms and doing certain things that will later help Allison with the freshman and that's pretty much it.

My ILP is going great! I'm doing grant research for Girls Thinking Global, and I'm making good progress with the list they've given me. While the work isn't exactly glamorous, it teaches me time management. I can do it anywhere and anytime, which really works for me.

Seyni Ndaw: ILP

My ILP is still going well. I haven't gone much in the last month except for once or twice because of illness, but when I do go my mentor says I do good work. I'm still mostly working in administration with phone calls and stuff, but occasionally I also help organize clothes or file stuff away. I think I've already surpassed the 15 hour minimum of the first quarter.

Siani/ILP

Right now I am ILP'ing at my mom's job. She is an accountant at a company where they organize huge sheets of metal and sell them. I so far have just helped out with little work and meeting a couple people but this week I will be taking a tour of the plant, getting to know personally what everyone does in the company; having a conversation with everyone. So I am really looking forward to doing that and seeing how that goes.

Alex / ILP Project StarGazer

Right now in my ILP, we have gotten down the controls for our joystick and are going to code in the controls. We are also waiting for a throttle for our cockpit that we already coded in but it hasn't come in since a few months. I think everything is fine, but we're going to have to boost our productivity since we need to get ready for EduCon 2.8.

Samuel Dennis: ILP w/ Technical.ly Philly

So far, my time at Technical.ly Philly has been jammed packed with a big interview, and i'm set up with a small task on making tweets on the side. So far, Technical.ly has been such a great experience for me, even if I'm working with people who are way higher than my work range. It is also interesting to engage in their adult like conversations about startups and new stories to cover. My mentor, Juliana Reyes, has introduced me to all of the writers and the editors at Technical.ly Philly, and who I get to work with. My first interview was carried put with a boy named Nicodemus Madehou. He created a video game called Turbo Finger Swipe, and I got to interview him. It was fun. Technical.ly Philly is a good ILP.
