How We Do It
Advocacy. Computer science should be part of the core curriculum in education, and that we must increase participation and access for female students and underrepresented minority students. We work to educate lawmakers on computer science reform efforts.
Connecting the Tech Community. Information Technology & computer science are found in all businesses and all industries. It spans hundreds of occupational classifications...some of which have yet to be defined! MATA serves as the hub, providing one place to visit and explore to find the area that interests you. We are constantly adding information that's timely, relevant, and meaningful.
- Networking and Special Events.
MATA is free to join and is supported by many of the Springfield region's businesses and organizations. We thank our sponsors for allowing us to offer many events at low or no cost to you.
