Last week, myself Mr. Suter and Tyler Boes traveled to Columbus for the annual Ohio Education Technology Conference.  On Feburary 12th, we had our own session and presented Rockettech to educators around the state. Immediately after our presentation we were approached by various amount of businesses throughout Ohio that wanted to partner with us or even simply ask for our advice. But before we got all professional-like, we stood in front of some 1,500 people to have a first-time-rap-battle on the OETC Keynote stage.

After we all nailed it, Rockettech took over the #OETC15 tag on twitter for a good 10 minutes.  Although it sounds like a fun and light-hearted trip, the three of us walked away from the 2015 conference with a deeper understand of what exactly we, as a club, were capable of.  We were completely validated by many people, including Yong Zhao, who took special interest in our club during his keynote presentation.

 

 
Because the students had been working hard for two years, Rockettch paid for all expenses of the trip. From the hotel rooms to restaurant checks we racked up past 150$...(yumm) We learned that hard work DOES in fact pay off, people!.

It was quite the great experience over all.  It was awesome publicity, a good change in perspective, but most of all it was educational fun...
