FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) - More than 200 northeast Indiana high school students attended Ivy Tech's third annual Northeast Indiana TechFest on Saturday.
The event included a video game tournament, games, competitions, workshops, and informational booths about Fort Wayne area careers, colleges, and internship opportunities. It was held at the Regional Public Safety Academy on Ivy Tech's South Campus.
There were also informational tables so students could learn about careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in Northeast Indiana.
Fort Wayne area universities and colleges were also on hand to provide information about majors related to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
"There has been a good number of students that have come to something like this, understood that we offer a lot here in Fort Wayne, and that it is a place they can stay and enjoy their career," Charles Duckwall, the Master of Ceremonies, said.
Prizes were awarded to the winning team in each game and raffle prizes were given away throughout the day.
