TCS brought its goIT program to Minnesota in 2014. This STEM training initiative fosters digital innovation and career readiness at local middle and high schools. Over 42,000 students in the US and Canada have been directly impacted by goIT, and 75% of students in Minnesota benefitting from goIT belong to groups currently underrepresented in computer science.
