As one of the leaders in NFC, Tagstand is committed to giving back to our community. Recently, Tagstand had the honor of giving back by being one of the sponsors for the San Leandro High School Byte Club.
Originally founded in September 2015 as the San Leandro High School Hack Club, the SLHS Byte Club is a student-run club whose mission is to build a community that educates, collaborates, and promotes computer science and the Internet of Things. The Byte Club accomplishes their mission by educating its members on computer programming, learning about other technologies, and by competing in hackathons to reinforce their learnings and comprehension on all things related to the Internet of Things.
One of the Byte Club’s projects is to learn about NFC technology, which included differing chip types, and brainstorming possible use case scenarios for NFC at San Leandro High School. Tagstand had the opportunity to support this project by providing various NFC tags with differing chips: NTAG213, Topaz 512, and DESFire EV1 8K NFC tags. With the use of these tags, the Byte Club was able to gain valuable hands-on experience with NFC technology. Additionally, each Byte Club member was able to keep an NFC tag to learn more about Near Field Communication technology in the comfort of their own home with their Android device.
Tagstand is a huge supporter of education, so if students or educators have any questions on NFC in the classroom, are interested in obtaining an educational discount, or are interested in working with us to help teach everybody about NFC, please contact: education (at) tagstand (dot) com.
