The Iron Yard in Charleston.

Long known for welcoming ships carrying goods that would make their way to the rest of the country, Charleston, South Carolina has been a hub of activity since America was born. Staying true to roots in commerce, the city has transformed itself into "Silicon Harbor," a modern-day port for technology companies who build products used all around the world. We couldn’t be more excited to be part of this thriving tech economy and helping to build it through our technology education programs.
