MATA SUPPORTS THE TECHNOLOGY COMMUNITY!
We’ve been busy doing what we can to create a sense of pride among all who are a part of the technology community. We have big plans for 2017. In addition to continuing our Idea Mashup networking events, we're making a huge impact in the following ways:
- Working with the region’s middle school principals and counselors to speak at Middle School Career Days on the many and varied career opportunities that exist in the technology sector
- Offering networking events for high school and college graduates to mix and mingle with technology professionals to promote technology career awareness and mentoring and networking opportunities.
- Engaging with schools utilizing project-based learning within their curriculum to expose young people to the exciting and lucrative field of technology.
- Providing opportunities for coders to come together for good through Hack4Good SGF.
- Bringing recognition to the varied and many technology user groups and organizations through our "Connect to Tech" brochure.
