6-7pm – Cocktail hour and reception with technology exhibition by KidsTek students
7-9pm – Dinner recognizing Colorado corporations contributing to technology literacy. Hear from a leading educator about the role of technology education in his success.

KidsTek connects the resources and opportunities of the technology sector with the identified technology education needs of underserved children and youth in Colorado.  We partner with schools and youth service providers to provide technology education, including a project-based curriculum, professional staffing, educational field trips, and guest speakers from technology companies. Activities and projects are youth driven and are framed by the National Education Technology Standards (NETS).  As the most comprehensive program of its kind in the state, KidsTek ensures that boys and girls gain meaningful exposure to technology and all it has to offer. By democratizing technology education we improve the outlook for their future and the future of Colorado.
