VANCOUVER, Wash. – Dick Hannah Dealerships is on a mission to make a difference in Southwest Washington. One thing that’s making a difference is a $67,000 gift that will provide scholarships to 10 Mobile Technology Research Fellows in the creative media and digital culture program at Washington State University Vancouver. The students will participate in the Mobile Tech Research Initiative this summer.
MTRI will take top-of-the-line students into two summer sessions where they will take advantage of existing curriculum to learn interface design, information architecture, coding, programming and multimedia production. All of their hands-on class work will center on building a mobile application as a team. By the end of the summer, the students will present a final product: a mobile app that Dick Hannah Dealerships can share with its customers.
