Project>Login: From Curiosity to Career

1,086 views

Published on

The demand for computing and IT professionals is growing nationally, and these are well-compensated careers for those who are passionate about technology. Unfortunately, in Maine, as elsewhere, too few young and adult learners are discovering this profession, mastering foundational skills, and gaining relevant experience to succeed.

Maine’s Project>Login has been working with students, teachers, and professionals to chart a course from curiosity to career: from playing and tinkering to making and studying to mastering the practices and competencies that will help them thrive in their future roles: at home, at work, and in the community.

How can we help young and adults learners discover, explore, and pursue pathways to the computing and IT profession?
