Students in the barbering program at the Fairfield Career and Technology Center had an opportunity to experiment with computer software to aid in creating hairstyles and designs for their future clients.
The program allows for adjustments in motion, size, width, angle, and rotation to create a virtual example of the finished style. The client and the barber are able to collaborate and get an idea of the final design before they begin.
Dominick Sanders, Computer Science State Supervisor at the Department of Education, said “It’s important for students to know that computer science is everywhere. We are living in the digital age and computer science is essential for nearly every future career path our children will take. Computer Science is crucial to a strong local/state economy. With the success of this event, it is our hope to build out a computer science module to be embedded in our barbering programs statewide.”
