CATA's IT students stand outside of Microsoft in Charlotte.

The Information Technology academy students at CATA attended a field trip to the Microsoft Corporation in south Charlotte. The students received a tour of the facility, and got the opportunity to speak with some Microsoft employees about their educational and work experiences. They received information on the latest products and updated information on future products.

The students also sat down for a Q & A session with the Microsoft group leaders. They answered questions about the history of the Microsoft Corporation, its leadership, and the various products Microsoft developed.

The students received door prizes for their correct responses. This is an annual field trip taken by IT academy students to expose them to potential careers in the information technology field, as well as providing them with the opportunity to speak directly with those working in the industry.
