Tech Industry Summit-

Connecting Tech Professionals with Educators

RESCHEDULED EVENT 

The Colorado Technology Foundation (CTF) and Denver Public Schools invite technology professionals to share their insight with high school technology teachers. 

In an effort to better align career and technical education with real-world industry applications, tech professionals will provide feedback on IT-based classroom projects. 

CTF has partnered twice with Denver Public Schools on similar industry forums and will be inviting additional school districts to send teachers and staff from tech career pathway programs to sit in on the feedback session. 

The event is an excellent opportunity for professionals to meaningfully engage with educators and have a direct impact on STEM education in Denver.

  • Stacey Miller, Pathways Director at West Campus
  • RJ Owen, Director at Universal Mind  

Questions
