From 9 to 11 a.m., an education preview will feature more than 500 kids from Vancouver, Evergreen and Camas school districts sharing computer science tech on stage.

Attendees aged 21 and older will have a chance to meet and mingle from 3 to 4 p.m. during a happy hour.

The paid portion of the expo consists of a $50-a-ticket digital technology luncheon, featuring marketing staff from the Blazers, Timbers and Hops. Panelists will talk about the digital platforms they use to engage with the community. The luncheon will run from noon to 1:30 p.m.

Community partners and sponsors include the Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce and the Southwest Washington STEM Network.
