The Minnesota State – IT Center of Excellence and their many partners, including MHTA – WLiT, have teamed up to address gender equality in tech through specially curated programs focused on engaging and supporting young women’s interests in tech.
Whether you ‘get IT’ or don’t, the Minnesota State – IT Center of Excellence can help dispel the myths and misconceptions of what information technology (I.T.) is , where I.T. happens, why I.T. happens… and by what kinds of people. The truth of the matter is this – I.T. is Everywhere… and it can be for Everyone!
SPARCS is about Sustaining Passion, Ambition and Resolve for Career Success. The year-round program for young women aims to build excitement and inspire students to embrace technology education at the high school level, through relevant and engaging information technology (I.T.) learning experiences. Ultimately, SPARCS experiences are designed to inspire and empower Minnesota’s young women to become technology literate, confident and competent.
