TechU.me is increasing technology know-how in Ottawa’s schools, and encouraging students to consider careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Our mandate is driven by the needs of our industry partners to create a pool of qualified employees graduating with degrees in technical disciplines. We could not exist without the generous support of our Program Supporter and our Program and Event Partners.
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.
In 2012, we launched our AppJam for students in grades 11-12.
Helping Ottawa’s youth explore opportunities and career prospects in technology is rewarding in many ways! If you want to support our program or one of our many initiatives, please contact Steve Evraire, Director, at: email@example.com
