Dozens of students from numerous Miami-Dade high schools participated in AT&T’s High Tech Day. The purpose for High Tech Day wass to get students excited about careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Students attending the Miami High Tech Day learned about the Internet of Things, like connected cars, smart homes, video on the go, and more.
