We are inviting students from Grades 7-12 to attend an amazing event to learn more about information technology. Want to learn about I.T. and use your creativity to develop a new IT innovation? Join us for an amazing opportunity to “Hack I.T.”

Hack I.T. is a great opportunity for middle school and high school students to get exposed to building something new using technology tools. The Naveen Jindal School of Management at UT Dallas is a great supporter of STEM — science, technology, engineering and math — and home to a nationwide leading undergraduate program in Information Technology and Systems.

Experience what it takes to earn a degree in a technology field. Learn about technology and then apply it to create something innovative. Present your work to industry professionals, network with faculty and students. All this capsuled into two days. We look forward to seeing you.
