The 29th annual TECH 2019 student technology showcase will be held on Tuesday, May 7 from 9 a.m.-3:15 p.m. at the Illinois State Capitol Building in Springfield where hundreds of students and teachers will represent schools from throughout the state. At the event, students will show the public and members of the Illinois State Senate and House of Representatives how technology is being used in the classroom to increase student engagement and improve achievement.
During the event, K-12 students and teachers will demonstrate engaging projects that utilize 3D printers, video, graphic design, robotics, animation and more. Legislators are invited to attend the event to see first-hand the importance of technology in education today and to interact with students and their teachers.
This year TECH Talk assemblies will be held between sessions to allow all attendees to hear from legislators and young innovators like themselves, who will inspire the students with what they have learned in the classroom and how they utilize that to influence change outside the classroom.
