The University of Idaho Coeur d'Alene is on a mission to foster a creative, well-educated and tech-minded community to support the growing knowledge economy in North Idaho. This effort involves students of all ages and includes initiatives like the Coeur d’Alene Computer Science degrees, Inspire Idaho, dual credit Computational Thinking and Dig’nIT.
Dig’nIT engages North Idaho middle and high school students with hands-on STEM activities and industry experience. Through camps and internships, Dig’nIT opens young minds to the world of college and career potential available close to home. Hundreds of tech and science jobs go unfilled every year in the Gem State. Through early exposure and experiential learning, Dig’nIT is preparing the next generation to take on these impactful careers and contribute to a brighter future for Idaho.
More than one-thousand campers and interns have shaped the Dig’nIT program since 2013. Are you next?
