A veteran of Broward County Public Schools, Randall Deich, is a Computer Science teacher at Lauderhill 6-12 STEM-MED and Founder/Chief Networking Officer at Regenerate Tech. Randall has a proven track record of bringing together schools, Industry partners, and community organizations that prepared high-need students for the current workforce. To address the minority gap in STEM careers, he partnered with a local software architect and together they designed and provided an authentic learning experience that empowered students with an in-depth knowledge of Computer Science. This partnership led to the formation of ReGenerate Tech, a not for profit foundation. Through this endeavor, Randall and his industry partners taught Computer Science solutions that addressed community needs. This after-school program allowed students to hone workforce skills leading them to real-world work experiences including student-led workshop facilitation, conference presentations, employment opportunities, paid internships, and national recognition in Computer Science.
Why did you become a NASEF Scholastic Fellow?
I chose to become a NASEF Fellow because the value NASEF brings to the post-secondary futures of my students. There is a need to address the high rate of minority student disconnection after high school. NASEF’s ecosystem provides the guidance necessary to start establishing career paths in high interest areas.
