Marshalltown High School freshman Keaten Collinson made a presentation at the Iowa Technology and Education Connection (ITEC) Conference in Des Moines on October 11.
Collinson was invited to present at the conference after winning a purple ribbon at the Central Iowa Tech Fair last spring at Iowa State University as an eighth grader.
Collinson’s table top presentation at ITEC was on networking.
“I was very excited to be there and lots of people came by and asked questions,” Collinson said. “They gave me some encouraging comments and some said it was a very well set up project.”
ITEC promotes the use of technology in education by demonstrating to its members, other educators and the public, developments in educational technology and how its appropriate use supports teaching and learning.
