Resources for participants
To participate in IT-Adventures you need to register a club with HyperStream (see contact info below). Clubs can be formed as part of a school or a group like Boy / Girl Scouts, 4H, home school group, etc.
Participants in IT-Adventures have access to the resources developed by Iowa State including the introduction to computing curriculum and the introduction to cyber security curriculum. Clubs will also have access to the newly developed playground environment (ISERink) which will allows clubs to explore many aspects of information technology like setting up computer systems, exploring networking concepts and installing and using various cyber security tools.
Participants in IT-Adventures also are invited to participate in the two day capstone event , named the IT-Olympics, on the ISU campus. It features high school students showcasing the technology knowledge they have gained during the year in competitions and presentations. IT-Olympics is also a celebration of technology, and is open to the public. Family members, high school counselors, teachers, and the general public can watch the students in their quest to be the best, or can explore technology careers and opportunities on their own.
To participate in IT-Adventures and IT-Olympics you need to have your club registered through HyerStream/IT-Adventures. IT-Olympics is only open to high school age clubs (9th grade through 12th grade)
