Student Success Story
Submitted By: Contra Costa County ROP
Following His Dream to Become an Entrepeneur
Charles graduated from California High, where he took both ROP Auto Technology and ROP Computer Aided Drafting (CAD)courses with instructor Steve Dick. Charles went on to major in mechanical engineering at California State University in Sacramento.
Hands-on ROP classes were very helpful to his future, he says. “ROP CAD helped me jump¬start on how to design and set up simple dimensioned blue prints. ROP Auto Tech made me a better designer.”
Charles and his partners created a concept and printed it with a MakerBot 3D printer. In less than a month the SquidCam went from an idea to a product! According to the company website, the SquidCam is the first case + lens system available for the iPhone 5.
