TechForward is committed to expanding STEM education and building the next generation of industry leaders. One of our signature events to support this mission is the Middle School Tech Ambassador program, currently in place in Hillsboro, IL - about four hours southwest of Chicago. 

The Tech Ambassador program at Hillsboro Junior High School has been designed especially for middle school students to present different STEM topics and workshops introduced by experts in the field from tech companies and universities throughout Illinois.

"Studies have shown that high school is too late to introduce STEM careers. We want to introduce students to all things technology touches and introduce them to new careers."

- Trisha Degg, Executive Director, TechForward

Past Tech Ambassadors have included Jason Dornbush of the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago who led a robotics-based class that allowed each student to play with a robot that could play soccer and even break dance and do headstands.
