Tomorrow, Warwick Career and Technical Center seniors Francisco Mendoza, 17, of Toll Gate and Nickolas Osborne, 17, of Pilgrim will partake in round three of the 2012 NetRiders event, a program endorsed by Cisco Systems that will put their technological skills to the test through problem solving and troubleshooting techniques. From 1 to 5 p.m., the boys will compete as a duo against more than 50 teams from throughout the country, as well as the Canada provinces, via webex, a computer program similar to Skype, and complete a two-part test. While they are looking forward to the competition, they are also eager to start college, as both students hope to attend Johnson & Wales University. Mendoza, who has been interning at OSHEAN, a non-profit coalition of universities, hospitals, government agencies and other non-profit organizations dedicated to providing innovative Internet-based technology solutions, plans to study network engineering, and Osborne is debating between taking up either network or software engineering.
