The Technology Association of Iowa (TAI) announced yesterday the first ever Iowa High School Technology Summit.

The summit will take place at the Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center on September 30, 2019, one day before the Iowa Technology Summit.

The Iowa High School Technology Summit will look to expose high school students to technology companies and careers throughout Iowa.

Three IT professionals will give presentations designed to challenge stereotypes, demystify the industry, and inspire the next generation of Iowa’s high-tech workforce.

“We want to introduce students to the great job opportunities in Iowa technology,” said Brian Waller, President of TAI, in an announcement. “Whether it’s building an app for a large transportation company or being on the ground floor of a startup creating the next big thing in software, there are incredible jobs in technology across the state.”

The conference will be live streamed and open to any Iowa student for the purpose of exposing them to technology professionals and careers in Iowa.
