THE HANDS ON LEARNING IN ITEC CAMPS, CLASSES AND WORKSHOPS MOTIVATES YOUNG PEOPLE TO PURSUE A PATH IN ENGINEERING, SCIENCE AND MATH.

The Interactive Technology Experience Center, iTEC, was established in 2007 for the purpose of introducing visitors to the many different fields of S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math). iTEC seeks to be an inspiration for young people by creating an environment where they can understand how engineering, science, math, arts and technology shape our lives and the future of the world.
