Parkland College's Business/Computer Science and Technologies department hosts its second annual Business and Technology Showcase Thursday, April 13, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. This free event introduces high school students to Parkland College programs that lead to profitable careers. The showcase features workshops that will give students hands-on experience with technology in the areas of Business, Computer Science, Broadcasting, and Manufacturing.
