    Nonprofit lets students flex their tech muscles
    "BELLEVUE, Wash. – Demand for talent in the technology industry is so great that some companies are offering six-figure salaries to college students before they even graduate.

    Seizing on that demand, a student-run non-profit in Bellevue, called StudentRND, is giving young people in high school and college a chance to get valuable hands-on experience.

    “You can’t really learn everything you need to in a class or in a textbook,” said Edward Jiang, StudentRND’s CEO. “You really have to learn by doing it.”

    On Wednesdays and Saturdays, StudentRND provides students a 3500-square-foot workspace to flex their tech muscles."
    ...
    "The organization will debut its new incubator program this summer, which will give students eight weeks to build a tech startup. Students from across the country are expected to take part. Applications are due May 15. The program has drawn major sponsors, including Medtronic Foundation.

    For more information, visit www.studentrnd.org."
