Patricia Klafki, a second-grade teacher at Turner Valley School in Alberta, Canada, knows that collaboration can be challenging. Even as adults, we sometimes want to hold our ideas tight and do everything ourselves. For young students, it can be even harder.

Do you remember your high school library? It’s been 25 years, but I still remember mine. Full of books and card catalogs, with a few computers (back then, that felt cutting edge). It was a place for individual study. And despite having a few tables for groups to use, if anyone tried to have a conversation, we were quickly shushed by a librarian on a mission to keep her space as quiet as teenagerly possible.

What a difference a quarter century makes! The libraries I see today couldn’t be more different – full of spaces for students to communicate, solve problems – perhaps even create in a makerspace or compose a song. The books are still there, but there’s so much more.

In the summer of 2017, we became interns at Nureva. While our friends were holidaying in the Bahamas or in Hawaii, we spent our sun-soaked days behind large glass windows on the top floor of the Calgary Board of Education building in downtown Calgary.

We led discussions with educational administrators from across North America, presented at departmental meetings and learned how a company structures its online presence. We delved into the complexities of the software and wrote blog posts. We grew a professional network and jumped headfirst into the work environment, all the while earning a paycheck that will go toward our postsecondary education.

This post is written by Grace Liang and Salma Salhi, our high school summer interns. Find out more about Nureva’s unique internship program for eleventh-grade students.

Growing up, we learned about male role models such as Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Ken Kutaragi, Neil Armstrong, Larry Page and Sergey Brin. These people were indirectly our heroes. They were giants, innovators and world changers. We imagined ourselves as the female versions of them. We grew up using computers and Google™, and we played with our friends on PSPs and talked over the Internet. We learned about how technology is going to make the future amazing.
