The state’s involvement in quantum computing, where two of the five National Quantum Science Research Centers are located, is the focus of this year’s Information Technology Month. In honor of World Quantum Day, DoIT will host a webinar on April 14 to introduce participants to the field of quantum physics and the variety of career paths it can open up.

The announcement also emphasized the state’s commitment to improving education in order to increase the number of IT and STEM professionals in the workforce.

Most K-12 public school districts in Illinois are participating in the Illinois Century Network (ICN), which has helped increase public school students’ access to broadband. In addition, all school districts are required, starting in the 2022–23 school year, to provide opportunities for students at every grade level to acquire computer literacy skills.
