Orange County Campus
The 1,200-square-foot multimedia center -- complete with its own 45-inch LCD and advanced graphics software -- offers high-tech, content-rich programs designed to promote interest and aptitude in technology. Programs in graphic design, animation, sound engineering, video production and CAD are available on any of the room's 20 desktop computers. A soundproof studio is accessible to students for music and voice-recording training.
The student lounge, with its completely wireless environment, enables TWLC participants to read, study or interact with learning kiosks in a casual meeting space. Additionally, students may check out learning equipment for personal and/or group use.
Each day, the café provides students in the day program with nutritional, catered lunches, which can also be enjoyed outside on the terrace overlooking the driving range. Snacks are offered through a cashless system that allows students to use their ID cards to swipe and pay.
With the capacity to seat 20 and the ability to accommodate technologically-advanced presentations, the TWLC Board Room is used for staff and board-member meetings, trainings and conferences.
The auditorium space is utilized for outreach programs, community workshops, lectures, large group presentations, video conferencing, performances, meetings and interactive learning. The room seats 230 people and features advanced projectors, movie theater-type screens and a wireless environment. The face of the auditorium is constructed of "photovoltaic panels" -- full-screened glass with the capability of generating power from sunlight.
The lobby area serves as the main entrance and waiting area for the TWLC. Visitors are greeted by the "LCD Wall," a state-of-the-art video-stream display highlighting TWLC activities and partners. Participants can check in virtually using a "Smart ID" card, while guests have the opportunity to take a visual tourof the facility using customized interactive kiosks.
|Golf Teaching Area
Golf is offered as a recreational option to students attending TWLC programs. The grounds include a 10-acre driving range with 20 tee stations as well as a 3-acre, 18-hole putting course. Golf instruction also serves as a character-development tool, teaching students about rules, etiquette and good sportsmanship.
The Computer Lab contains over 100 computer stations. Each pre-wired station is equipped with printers, docking stations and wireless laptops. Students are able to work on projects, receive tutoring/mentoring or engage in computer-based learning modules.
Student instruction takes place in classrooms that incorporate various themes such as engineering, communications and robotics. Students have access to 90 laptop computers with wireless capabilities, enabling them to connect to the Internet and complete technology-infused lessons. Teachers also utilize technology as a tool to deliver instruction and monitor student progress.
Washington, D.C. Campuses
Instruction begins in a classroom-style environment as the teacher provides cutting-edge communication techniques such as animation, computer graphics, video production and audio broadcasting. Students bridge their knowledge and instruction into the surrounding modules. In paired groups, the students complete communication and video production projects. The teacher monitors the students' progress.
Student instruction begins with asset training incorporated with homework completion. Students branch out into pairs of 11 different modules in which their focus is on engineering and science. They have access to the latest green engineering software used to aid learning about alternative energy. The teacher monitors the students' progress.
