Why Tech Night?

We recognize that high school and college students often do not know much about Information Technology careers or they may have a very narrow view.  As a result of the challenging economy, many schools have had to reduce their technology focused courses.

OIT’s goal is to educate students to the possibilities of Information Technology as an exciting and very viable career path.  In addition to talking about the technology aspects, we also stress the importance of teamwork, collaboration, creative problem solving and endless learning opportunities.

This event is fun and interactive.  We keep the group fairly small (30-40 students) and involve them in activities that allow them to meet members of our agency, learn about some of the technology that the different agencies use throughout the State and give them a chance to experience some of those technologies directly through hands-on activities.
