Led by the Ottawa Network for Education (ONFE), TechU.me encourages students to pursue careers in technology through educational programming in Ottawa’s schools.
Originally known as the Ottawa High School Technology Program, TechU.me began as a pilot in 2007 and has since welcomed FedDev Ontario as a Program Supporter. Through FedDev, TechU.me has received funding and the mandate to expand the program to 25 secondary and 190 elementary schools by March 2014.
TechU.me focuses on the grade 10 programming course, partnering high school students with grade 3 students to create educational mobile apps. With the help of their teachers and industry mentors, the grade 3 clients provide the inspiration, content, and visual design for the grade 10 students’ app development.
TechU.me thanks its Program Supporter and its many Program and Event Partners for their continued support.
