Maine has lots of good jobs in IT and computing, and lots of smart kids and adults capable of doing the work. Project>Login is all about bringing them together.
A program of Educate Maine, Project>Login is the state’s leading resource for anyone interested in the computing and IT field.
Parents of younger students: We offer online resources to encourage your child’s curiosity about computers, smart phones and tablets, the apps that make them work, plus robotics, numbers and systems. And you can learn about the school curricula available in the required skills, especially math, technical language, problem-solving and analysis.
High School Students: Maine high schools and institutions of higher education now offer all the courses and programs needed to help you get hired and succeed in a computer tech job.
College students: There are dozens of businesses that want to help you get the education and training you need to work for them. Many offer paid internships, which are a great way to try out a career path.
On a different route to a tech career? Our TechHire program is designed especially to help Mainers enter the field from non-traditional pathways.
Educators: Check out resources to make your classroom a nurturing place for tech-minded kids!
