to TechiesDay 2000!
is a nationwide initiative to address our nation's increasing demand
for a qualified technology workforce. TechiesDay supports a long
term solution to this challenge by integrating technology career
awareness, readiness, and achievement into K-12 classrooms. This
initiative also calls for response among corporations, organizations,
and individuals to help bring technology to life and inspire young
people to pursue the knowledge they need to succeed in technology
On Oct. 3,
2000, local organizations took part in TechiesDay activities across
the nation. Over 100 employee recognition and school volunteer events
took place on TechiesDay. These local events brought students, educators,
and of course, techies together to shine a spotlight on the many
opportunities available to students in technology. These events
play a huge role in helping to address the workforce development
issues facing our country.
thanks all of the students, teachers, technology professionals,
corporations, government, and community and industry associations
that took part in TechiesDay 2000, and issues the challenge to make
TechiesDay 2001 even better!
