Local Kids Learn about IT Careers from Info System Faculty

A career in information technology is one of the most sought-after and lucrative in the country. Each year there are growing efforts by state and federal governments and Fortune 500 employers to reach children at an early age and encourage them to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math.

Danielle Fowler, associate professor of information systems and chair of the department of information systems and decision science, is also working hard to reach future IT professionals. Recently she volunteered at a Baltimore County elementary school for its STEM Career Day. She demonstrated to children in Kindergarten to fifth grade how computer code works, the basics of the inner workings of a computer and how fun it is to solve problems using computers.

Fowler is also the director of the University of Baltimore’s Cyber Discovery Camp, a week-long residential camp for high school student teams taking place in the week of June 17 from six area schools. Each team includes six students and two teachers, typically one from the math and sciences and one from the arts and humanities). Together, with experts from the National Integrated Cyber Education Research Center and faculty from UB, the teams will discuss cyber security issues in both the public and private sectors, and explore cyber security career development, including cyber related careers in non-traditional disciplines like business, law and the social sciences.
