Charlotte Cyber Saturday Partners with STEMlympics

Cyber Saturday LogoThe North Carolina Science Festival is a multi-day celebration showcasing science and technology. On Saturday, April 18th, IT-oLogy Cyber Saturday partnered with the Festival, Discovery Place and STEMlympics.  Hundreds of Middle and High School students were engaged and inspired through hands-on activities, technology and science experiences, exhibits and performances.

Cyber Saturday presented a hands-on introduction to 3D printing.   Students learned about the fundamentals and the 3D printing process.   Students worked with hand held tools to develop basic designs and moved on to 3D printers to print their selected objects.

IT-oLogy Cyber Saturday offers an opportunity to celebrate technology in fun and welcoming settings. Cyber Saturday is one of the initiatives where IT-oLogy is collaborating with business, education and economic development organizations to respond to the challenges of the shortage of talent in the IT pipeline.

Mark your calendars for the upcoming Cyber Saturdays, May 16th and June 3rd.  For more information, contact Kay Read, [email protected].
