Youth Building the Future Month 2021

In September 2021, Youth Building the Future Month, Technical.ly is focusing extra reporting on youth-built apps, career readiness, STEAM learning programs and the like.

Some questions we'll seek to answer: How are students being introduced to technology? How can educators prepare students for the industries of the future? Are young technologists optimistic or pessimistic about the future of tech and their own potential careers in it?
