There was a lingering question when we started our program at Patrick Henry HS.
Would the students be paid? It was to be an internship afterall.
I wanted to pay the students, but I did not know how to even pay myself.
Though we’ve since gotten a bit better of handle on that.
The plan is to pay each student $10 for their first scraper, pending that they are able to explain each line of code.
After this each scraper will be worth $5.
An example of a scraper can be seen here.
The next step is to teach the students how to complete the scraper, for which they will receive an additional $5.
It isn’t much, though two can easily be completed in an hour, making the entire endeavor a $20/hour gig for those who choose to apply themselves.
I am using my own monies to fund the first payment, though would greatly appreciate help to continue this and so have created a specific pool where funds can be collected solely for the purpose of paying students.
