My Capstone for my Senior Year envisioned a technical cleaning service that was schoolwide for anyone to have their devices cleaned. My guiding question through this endeavor was “How can I help the gaming community at SL@B by developing a Computer Technical Cleaning Service at Science Leadership Academy at Beeber?” To attempt to accomplish this task, I first researched what tools I needed in order to disassemble and clean any technical device I came across. I then researched how other similar local Philadelphia-owned businesses managed their operations and came up with an appointment based system for people to sign up to on days where I had free time to clean their devices. Lastly, I then advertised my business with flyers throughout the school with a QR code for people to sign up to.
In total, I got the honor to clean 15 different technical devices ranging from Video Game Consoles, Laptops, Microwaves, Fans, etc. I got to see a different side of myself in the eyes of pristine productivity. With the accumulated knowledge I had under my belt in how to clean technical devices, it became second nature to me in properly diagnosing a problem with a person’s device, knowing what tools to use, and knowing exactly where to look for screws and whatnot to dissemble a technical device. I become another beast when it came to this kind of thing as I treated it as a game of pre-determined chess. I’m grateful for doing this Capstone.
