The I.T. Center of Excellence encourages youth and adults to pursue careers in I.T. through collaboration with the tech industry and Minnesota educators. We strive to provide low or no-cost resources that teach relevant, high demand technology workforce skills for schools and students, our partners, and families through hands-on learning and engagement opportunities.

Engaging Industry.

Enhancing Education.

Inspiring Students.

Despite the growing use of technology in our world, there is a lack of computer science education in Minnesota schools.  Unbelievably, there are no computer science curriculum standards for secondary schools, and high schools are not required to offer computer science for students.  This lack of access to I.T. education has created a skills gap that is creating a frightening tech workforce shortage for companies in Minnesota.   

The I.T. Center of Excellence exists to help encourage youth and adults to pursue careers in I.T.. We collaborate with the tech industry leaders, I.T. professionals, and technology businesses of Minnesota to learn what they are doing with technology today and the skills they will need in a future workforce.  Using this knowledge, we work with Minnesota educators to develop innovative ways to keep our state’s students on top through curriculum development, low or no cost resources, and hands-on events.
