Making IT Fun!

Welcome to IT-Adventures

IT-Adventures is an innovative program that is dedicated to increasing interest in and awareness of technology among high school students. IT-Adventures, also known as IT-A, implements inquiry-based learning focused on three areas:

  1. Robotics
  2. Cyber Defense
  3. Smart-IT

IT-A has partnerships with industry leaders, secondary education and post-secondary education. These partnerships develop educational programming and competitive events for the high school students. Students who participate in their high school’s IT-Adventures Club gain access to the educational material from Iowa State University and are able to consult technology professionals.

The capstone event for IT-A students is IT-Olympics on the Iowa State campus. High school students showcase their technology knowledge during the event, while family, the high school community and public are able to attend and network.
