Local tech partners with schools for STEAM expansion


The technology industry has been staring down an oncoming workforce shortage.

As fewer people possess specialized skillsets they seek, they have had to become more proactive.

Large businesses across the region – and across the country – have forged partnerships with school districts.

That means companies like Lockheed Martin share their high-tech tools with high schools.

It means tech education camps at Electronic Arts’ headquarters, showing young students what the tech field can enable.

With so many universities in town, it only makes sense that businesses collaborate as much as they can to create a next-generation tech workforce.

And that’s even before you consider grant and scholarship programs.
