About Cyber Saturday
Cyber Saturday is a free monthly program run by IT-oLogy partners where students can learn more about IT. These creative sessions cover a variety of IT topics including hands-on activities as well as presentations from IT professionals. The content covered on a particular Cyber Saturday rotates each month. The goal of this program is to give students the opportunity to explore and experience technology in new ways, learn about careers in technology, and inspire students to continue to learn through critical thinking so that they increase their proficiency in STEM.
This month, we will continue our hands-on coding exercises.
