Technology use is growing fast in our world, but there is a lack of computer science education in Minnesota schools.  There is not a computer science curriculum standard  for secondary schools, and high schools are not required to offer computer science.  This lack of access to I.T. education creates a skills gap that in turn leaves a tech workforce shortage for the companies of Minnesota.   

The I.T. Center of Excellence was created to help with these issues by encouraging youth and adults to pursue careers in technology. We do this by collaboration with tech industry leaders, I.T. professionals, and Minnesota business to learn what they are doing with technology today and the skills needed in a future workforce.  We also work with educators to develop curriculum, low or no cost and easily accessible resources, and hands-on events for students.
