Tech Tour 2014 - Visit Your Future

Join the CBIC Tech Tour - October 9! The Tech Tour is all about igniting local students interest in technology-related careers and showcasing the variety of opportunities available in our community to pursue their passions. The 2013 tour saw 420 area middle and high school students visit 66 technology related companies and organizations in a single day!
