2012 Create IT Discovery Day at IT-oLogyMore than 50 local high school and middle school students attended “Create IT Discovery Day” on March 17 at IT-oLogy located in downtown Columbia, SC. The event was organized by the Integrated Information Technology Program at USC (iIT) in partnership with IT-oLogy and was aimed at helping students explore the different career options available in today’s IT industry. Students participated in several hands-on learning workshops led by students and faculty from USC and also toured the University of South Carolina campus. Door prizes included iPads, iPods and other technology items.

“We were very pleased with the turnout of students from the Midlands area and beyond,” said USC Integrated Information Technology professor Dr. Robert Brookshire. “We are also very grateful to our corporate sponsors: IT-oLogy, who provided the facilities; TM Floyd & Company, who funded the snacks and t-shirts, and Best Buy, who donated iPads, iPods and flash drives to be used as door prizes.”

“This event is all about giving students the opportunity to get informed, ask questions, and dig into this thing we call information technology,” said Lonnie Emard, executive director at IT-oLogy. “We want these young individuals to understand that IT is changing the world we live in and how we live in it. But more importantly, the role they can have in shaping the future of this exciting industry.”

The IT industry in South Carolina now employs more than 47,300 professionals and Information Technology was recently named by the University of South Carolina as one of its Top 5 Most Popular Majors. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that jobs in the IT sector will increase by as much as 30% by 2018.
