Bringing tech-savvy teens?

The Tech Jam is also a great opportunity to get middle and high school students excited about math, science and technology, and to give them a glimpse at the kinds of careers they could pursue — right here in Vermont — after graduation. This year, we have lots of dynamic, hands-on activities, including robotics demonstrations, video games, a 3D printer, an ultrasound machine and a station where kids can program LEGO MindStorm robots.

Teachers: Bring your students on Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Click here for the Field Trip RSVP form.

Parents: Bring your kids on Saturday! We hear from parents every year who rave about this event.
