For those of you who missed it this year...
The CBIC Tech Tour is an annual local event to introduce area middle and high school students to the dynamic high technology world that exists in the Charlottesville/Albemarle County metro region.
Students representing approximately 22 regional schools will spend the day traveling to over 50 selected companies
- for hands-on visits
- to meet employees
- and experience the use of technology in unique and specialized operations.
This technology tour exposes students to the challenging and diverse career possibilities offered by our regional technology community. The tour is designed to help them envision themselves as technology employees, professionals and entrepreneurs in the next wave of tech advancements in our area.
We had an outstanding group of sponsors last year, representing organizations that understand the importance of STEM education to building the technology workforce! A complete list of participating companies can be found on our interactive Tech Tour Map!
