Editor’s note: NolaVie is proud to partner with five young tech apprentices in the Earn and Learn program at the Cowen Institute at Tulane University. The program offers intensive, career-focused technical and academic skills training through partnering institutions Bard Early College and Delgado Community College. We asked the Earn and Learn students to use their tech skills to write, produce, publish, edit and cover their community, with content that will appear here and on their own blog, Y-U-Kno Tech.
