Modeled after tech and educational conferences, Nextech Navigate is a virtual computer science conference designed to inspire rising freshman (current 8th graders) and current high school students (9-12 grade) to pursue a post-secondary path in computer science and technology, and to remind them that they are the innovators of our future. All 8-12th grade students in Indiana are invited to attend this four-hour virtual conference regardless of computer science class enrollment and type of school they attend.

At Navigate, students are empowered to make their own agenda by choosing sessions that interest them the most. Sessions are focused on the following topics:

  • Indiana tech community & tech companies
  • Tech applications and CS concepts via technical instruction

  • Gain awareness of Indiana technology and tech-enabled organizations and potential tech jobs within the state
  • Exercise choice by selecting and creating their own conference experience and agenda
