The Kent School District’s Information Technology Department hosted its 2017 Technology Expo on Thursday at the ShoWare Center.

The expo showcased how students gain college and career skills through classroom projects using technology tools. Students and teachers demonstrated technology in use, spoke about what they have learned and asked attendees to get involved.

Attendees had the opportunity to experience school district technology integration by solving a problem, completing a task or building a device with student presenters.

The expo also highlighted local businesses and organizations that support the use of technology in education. These business sponsors and exhibitors helped demonstrate the connection between classrooms and careers.
