We were happy to host a group of students from Sundown High School’s Apollo program when they stopped by during their trip to DFW. Making the journey all the way from Sundown, a small Texas town outside of Lubbock, the students were eager to learn about mobile gaming. While here, they were treated to a presentation by our VP of Thruster, Matt Johnson and an appearance by our president, Calvin Carter. Rob Legg, who runs Thruster’s business development and one of our Bottle Rocket Account Managers, David Coulson, were also on hand to give the students some perspective from the business side of the mobile apps industry.
Following the presentation, we took the students on a tour of our office. We’re not sure what they found more exciting- the bean bag chairs or our wall-to-wall white boards! According to one of their teachers, Vowery Carlisle, they all were absolutely thrilled with the “wonderful presentation and all the great information” that we shared.
The Apollo program at Sundown ISD was developed with a special curriculum for gifted and talented students to enhance their intellectual and leadership ability, and their creative and productive thinking. The program is not only for high school students, but is open to all kids from K-12 who qualify.
Wishing the Sundown students continued success!
