Education Fuels Milwaukee Tech Hub
The MKE Tech Hub vision is to make our city a nationally ranked home where people thrive within a vibrant community built on innovation and technology.
This is not what Milwaukee is currently known for but the tide is changing. This session will focus on the role of education in this effort. The MKE Tech Hub Education Workgroup is focused on expanding STEM programming (with a focus on the “T”) and aligning education with talent needs in the region.
We will also debut a new resource developed to demystify the opportunities available for educators and companies to support the expansion of CS opportunities in schools (MTEC, PLTW CS, TEALS, Code.org, Girls Who Code, Internships, etc.)
