About

IT professionals are needed in the Fox Valley to introduce students to careers in Information Technology. Providing IT role models at an early age is critical if we wish to engage student interest and satisfy the long term demand for workers in this exciting field!

FVTC and The Boys & Girls Club of the Fox Valley have teamed up to create MegaBites, a program targeting kids from 3rd to 12th grade. Our goal is to get kids interested and excited about careers in IT.

Current subjects:

Web Development- HTML & JavaScript

Information Security- Rubber Ducky's

Programming- Sphero

Mobile App Development- App Inventor

Dates: 6 week sessions Beginning in the Fall

We are looking for volunteers from the IT field to help out with MegaBites. Each program consists of 6 weeks, one night per week at one of our 6 participating sites. Help out as much as you can!
