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.
