Camps

Hyland's Hy-Tech Camps are designed to introduce students to a wide range of technology topics in order to help them find out what they like to do, or even what they may not like to do.

Innovation Showdown

The High School Innovation Showdown is a team competition that tasks students to use their creativity to come up with an innovative concept that could solve a real-world problem.

Hy-Tech Club

Hyland Hy-Tech Club is for students in GRADES 9-12 who want to learn how to code. After a short application process, students meet each week after school where they learn about new tech concepts and work on projects to present at the end of the semester.

Shadowing and Field Trips

Students who want to learn what a career in the software industry is like have the opportunity to shadow employees in several different departments, from software development to marketing to human resources. Learn more.

Hyland Hackathon

We're excited to invite high school and college students to spend a weekend at our world headquarters in Westlake, Ohio for the annual Hyland Hackathon. Come learn new things, work on something cool, and show it off to your peers.
