IT is it!  Discover why Tech is fun, rewarding, dynamic, creative, challenging and very cool.  

A vetted list of technology ‘experience’ providers who offer K-12 students, parents, and teachers a wide array of free and inexpensive ways to explore the IT world.

The IT Discovery Network exists because future IT talent begins when technology, curiosity, and fun are given the chance to flourish through experimentation. The ultimate goal is to support students and give them resources to make informed decisions about their future learning and career options by creating opportunities for kids to team up with peers to learn new computing skills and also engage with technology professionals who love what they do.

We want to inspire youth to become our next, best Minnesota-grown technology talent.
