Do you want to meet the innovators who work on Xbox One, Windows and Bing? Do you want to meet students from all over the Puget Sound? Do you want to learn some basic technical skills that will help you find a fun summer job and get into college? This three-day event will help you figure out what you want to do and provide the opportunity to learn about some of the many careers available in the technology field; a field with high salaries, flexible schedules and opportunities to be creative and make a difference. When you apply, simply use the same directions and requirements used to apply for the High school internship program.
