IBM has long brought the education community together, from kindergarten all the way through college, as well as to not-for-profits that support non-traditional students. IBM supports improved career and technical education, particularly for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), subjects that contribute to societal improvement and economic development. In cooperation with Istanbul Directorate of National Education at the business-school partnership model, IBM volunteers delivered trainings for students at Information Technologies Department at Maçka Technical and Vocational High School. The lectures focused on issues of web design, introduction to design thinking and project management. Lectures will continue for Network Hardware and Management System department.
