Caption: High school students participate in the UW-Madison Information Technology Academy (ITA). About 75 students between the ages of 14 and 18 are enrolled in the outreach program. Low-income and minority students from the Madison Metropolitan School District spend alternate Saturdays together for up to four years, studying computer hardware and software and other science and technology topics. The ITA has parallel goals of providing greater science opportunities to students who are otherwise underserved and improving undergraduate diversity at UW-Madison.
