Ivy Tech's Northeast Speakers, Performers,
Intellectual exhibits and Recreational Experiences
If people can find something that inspires them, they are likely to do something
that will enrich not only their own life but the lives of those around them.
INSPIRE Academy’s 2015 projects included two community-wide projects that focused on key values of the College and the northeast Indiana community.
First was the Northeast Indiana TechFest in April which celebrated all things STEM and tech focused in our region. The event happens annually and features a one-day region-wide STEM competition and conference for Northeast Indiana high school students, featuring:
- inter-school STEM competitions
- educational breakout sessions and workshops
- employer and college exhibits in a career fair/tradeshow setting
School teams compete for points earned by entering competitions, attending breakout sessions and exhibits, and by just attending TechFest. INSPIRE Academy was a proud sponsor of such a worthy cause that undoubtedly inspired many young people to look at technology as a possible career path.
The second event was the 2015 South Side Fest hosted at Public Safety Academy: Ivy Tech South Campus on Fort Wayne’s south side. INSPIRE Academy was pleased to be a partner on the event whose goal was to bring together and celebrate south side businesses, organizations, leaders, and community members.
INSPIRE Academy aims to provide inspirational and creative opportunities targeting various members of the community including Ivy Tech faculty, staff and students, members of K-12 educational institutes, and community members.
