YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN)- Nearly 100 local high schoolers were at YSU Tuesday for YSU College of STEM’s first National Technology Day event.

It helped students who have an interest in computer science and information technologies learn how they can use that in careers.

The event showed students what kind of companies might be hiring people with their knowledge and the goals they can set for themselves.

Hands-on workshops were also part of the event, and students got to meet with local employers who hire people with a tech background.
