Seattle Central’s IT Programs has partnered with IGNITE (Inspire Girls Now In Technology Evolution) for the past 8 years to host GLITTER (Get Launched In Technology Through Education and Resources). This event brings 100 area high school girls to college for workshops on technology, working in the field, applying to college and financial aid.
The message of this event is that getting a college education, particularly in Computer Science/Information Technology is not only for software industry but will aid in whatever industry desired to pursue (healthcare, education, aerospace, etc). This year GLITTER is being sponsored with a generous donation from Starbucks, who will be hosting a panel discussion during lunch.
