Teen Tech Day is a one-day interactive conference, created by New Orleans Tech, to emphasize math, science, and engineering as tool to enable teens to use technology anywhere from a hobby to a career. Now back for the fifth time, the event is designed to help the teens interact with the speakers and each other to get excited about technology.
The one day event was launched in 2011 to expose youth in New Orleans to emerging technology. Teen Tech Day organizers Shercole King and Chris Boudy want to offer a fun environment that encourages learning and problem solving for teens.
The 5th annual event will take place at Delgado Community College on March 14, 2015 for participants ages 13-16.
Boudy and King previously told SBN, “We believe in small action creating huge impact. With Teen Tech Day we hope to bring more kids into the technology field. We just want to create options and knowledge to students. These are students who already like technology, we hope to help turn this like into passion and thirst for more knowledge to eventually lead them into a technological field and possibly become a leader in our growing technology industry in Louisiana.”
Teen Tech Day will be highlighting game development, web design, robotics, a makers bootcamp, programming and engineering.
Organizers say that each track will have a variety of different expert instructors to teach participants about the basics of each subject. Speakers and companies will also be in attendance to discuss options in the IT field for jobs and careers right here in New Orleans.
The program is currently seeking registrants, volunteers, sponsors and presenters. Visit teensfortech.com/teen-tech-day-5/ for more information.
