CEO of BRMI, and Day of Tech host for Data Analytics/Visualization, Mike Battle, commented, “The techfrederick Day of Tech was an exciting opportunity to leverage my professional experience to describe the art of the possible for students who traditionally would not pursue careers and technology. For my team at BRMI/DMS, it also gives us an opportunity to engage the local Frederick community. The work of techfrederick to engage the minority community in the greater Frederick area in the hopes of increasing diversity participation in technology, is remarkable. Engaging with the LYNX program at Frederick High School is such a great chance to connect early and build a passion for tech careers. For me personally, being a part of these efforts is a truly gratifying experience. I look forward to continuing this work in the hopes of making a difference.”

Techfrederick looks forward to expanding the Day of Tech experience to other high schools in the Frederick County Public School system, as well as, to other local community organizations.

techrederick has been formed to identify, highlight, support, foster awareness of, advocate for, and develop Frederick’s growing high tech community through community education and human resource development, entrepreneurship training programs and seminars, and related events.
