Create IT Discovery Day is a high energy event designed for high school students to learn about the many exciting careers in information technology (IT). The goal of the program is to encourage high school students to major in IT disciplines in college and pursue careers in IT.
Students and faculty from the University of South Carolina, along with IT professionals, will lead hands-on activities exploring the wide range of career options available in IT and the necessary skill sets required for success in those careers. Attendees will be engaged in activities designed to reinforce what is learned. Panel discussions, a tour of the University of South Carolina campus and great door prizes will round out the day.
Create IT Discovery Day is sponsored by IT-oLogy, in collaboration with its partner TM Floyd & Company, and the University of South Carolina College of Hospitality, Retail and Sport Management Integrated Information Technology program.
