WHY TECHVENTURE KIDS?

  1. Students engage in short flexible projects, with lots of choice and challenges, giving them a chance to enjoy self-directed learning, and accomodate all levels.
  2. Instructors discuss computer concepts through demonstrations, class involvement, and unplugged activities
  3. We encourage a “club” atmosphere where students are encouraged to collaborate and learn from each other

  1. We keep our classes small with Instructor to Student Ratio at a maximum of 1:9, enabling more 1-on-1 time with students
  2. All classes are open to mixed ages and levels, encouraging students to be both learners and teachers
  3. Creating critical 21st century thinkers, our first question to a raised hand: “How did you try to solve the problem?”
