Want to train for a high-tech career?

Representatives from several Vermont schools will attend the Jam to discuss training opportunities for high school students and career changers. If you've been thinking about going back to school, this is a great opportunity to size up your options. Click here to find out which schools will be attending.

Bringing tech-savvy teens?

The Tech Jam is also a great opportunity to get middle and high school students excited about math, science and technology, and to give them a glimpse at the kinds of careers they could pursue — right here in Vermont — after graduation. This year, we have lots of dynamic, hands-on activities, including robotics demonstrations, video games, a 3D printer, an ultrasound machine and a station where kids can program LEGO MindStorm robots.

Teachers: Bring your students on Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Click here for the Field Trip RSVP form.

Parents: Bring your kids on Saturday! We hear from parents every year who rave about this event.

Want to know what the Jam is really like?

The Tech Jam has received lots of media coverage over the last five years. The best way to find out what it's really like is to watch Eva Sollberger's videos of the event. Eva is the multimedia producer for Seven Days, the independent newsweekly that organizes the Tech Jam. Click here to see stories and videos about past Tech Jams.
