I volunteered at the Oregon Game Project Challenge this year and could not have been more impressed with the obvious enthusiasm and meticulous planning by TechStart in hosting that event. As a result, the students clearly enjoyed that opportunity to share and learn from the competition. I was amazed at the students' work, and grateful to be a part of the TechStart work.

Tech-Start fills a role for teachers and students during these uncertain economic times as a beacon of what can be! The Tech-Start Team has been very supportive providing students in Oregon the opportunity to apply for scholarship to Post Secondary education. This motivates student to excell and realize a career in the field of choice that has a technology base. I encourage every High School and School District in Oregon to participate in this robust opportunity for high school age students.

Insight School of Oregon has had technology teachers on our staff recognized by Tech Start. We have also been able to support our students who have made application for Post Secondary scholarship opportunities through Tech Start.

I've seen first-hand the results of TechStart's teacher education and student immersion offerings in the area of computer science and technology education in K-12. My son has had the opportunity to participate in statewide game programming and puzzle solving competitions, as well as participate in helping to develop new curriculum to blend discrete mathematics with computer science.

At a time when many are wondering if kids in our country have what it takes to compete in the global workplace, if they have the 21st century technology skills required to succeed, I take solice in TechStart's work in Oregon. At the Oregon Game Project Challenge (OGPC)run by TechStart, I saw firsthand in May the culimination of months of work of students that programmed games to address biohealth. Not only did they work in teams to accomplish a goal, but their energy was electric. That's the energy that TechStart can create -- the kindling of the technology fire in OR kids.

Our company is in the Technology Staffing Business. Even in times of high unemployment, we have that their is a 20% shortage of technology workers. Our economic future depends on the young people coming out of college with technology and engineering degrees. Techstart does exactly what their name says, sparks students K thru 12 interest in technologies. They put on programs to train teachers to introduce students to technology, and exciting programs for their students. Please help your children and other students to understand the impact that technology in their futures.

I had the pleasure to see the sparkle of the students involved with Techstart programs. I have been witness to the parents gratitude for the scholarships offered to their son or daughter. It is a very satisfying feeling.
